IFP can have a single database open at any one time. This is referred to as the Active Database and is shown in various places in the system including on IFP Home.
Tip: Hovering over the active database shows the Current Year, Month and Trading Day.
How to Change the Active Database
- On IFP Home, click the database link at the top right.
- Select your database e.g. P and L Demo and click OK.
The Empty_Starter database is not a database as such, but is used in the following situations:
- When you wish to restore a database backup for the current database.
- When there is a problem starting IFP, allowing you to access the system and resolve the issue.
