The first time you run Stonefield Query, you are asked for the location of the AccountMate SQL files and where Stonefield Query puts its files.

You can specify any directory for the Stonefield Query files, but we recommend a directory on a server; that way, you can share reports with other users.

For the location of the AccountMate SQL files, either type the directory where AccountMate SQL is installed or click the button beside the text box and locate the AccountMate SQL directory in the dialog that appears.

After specifying the settings in Step 1, click the Next button.

The options in the Contact Information page are used as contact information when you send an error report to us. The options are self-explanatory. The ones with a red * are required.

The options in Step 3 are used when you want to email a report to someone or if an unexpected error occurs in Stonefield Query, in which case you have an option of emailing an error report to us so we can resolve the problem. The options are the same as in the Email page of the Options dialog.

After specifying the settings in that step, click the Next button.

If your database has a lot of tables and fields, you may have a long list to choose from in step 2 of the report wizards, making it difficult to know which fields to select. To make things easier, turn on the Run Process option in this step. It performs the same function as selecting the Analyze Reports function in the Tools menu and the Tools tab of the ribbon; see the help topic for the Analyze Reports function for details. This process may take some time to run, depending on how many reports there are.

After you've closed this dialog, it doesn't normally come up again. If you need to change any settings, see the Configuring Stonefield Query help topic. If you want to force the dialog to appear again, add an Other section to SFQuery.ini and create an Action entry under that section with a value of Setup. For example:

[Other]
Action=Setup
