2011 files want to save to a 2010 directory

When I carry forward a 2010 file to 2011, and then try to save it, Profile wants to save it back to my 2010 directory. I have to manually change the file directory to 2011 on the SAVE screen each time if I want it to go to my 2011 directory. This does not happen to NEW files, just CARRYFORWARDS.

 I have been using Profile for several years, and have never encountered this before. Is this an issue with this year's version, or have I just not set it up properly? Has anyone else experienced this?



Hello Bob,

Here is what you need to do to address the situation:

1.  In ProFile, click "Options" and select "Module" to display the "Module Options" dialog.
2.  On this dialog while on the "General" tab, remove the "X" from the " Carry forward files to the same location as previous year" option in the "Carry forward files" section.
3.  Click "OK" to close the "Module Options" dialog.

Hope the above helps.

Thank you.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
