Below is an embedded version the “How to update TATEMS on RDS server” video:

Always make sure you make a backup copy of your data before updating.

The data file to backup is called

TATEMS2005be.mdb and is normally located in the:

C:\Program Files\TATEMS 2005

Folder. (It might also be on a network drive if you are networked. You can see the data file you are accessing before you update by clicking on Tools->Networking)

You can just right click on the file and choose copy and then paste it back into the same folder or another folder to create a backup copy.

There is also a backup feature in TATEMS 2005 and TATEMS 20/20 if you go to File->Backup and Compact Data

Make sure TATEMS is closed and then after downloading the file you can double-click it to unzip the files:


C:\Program Files\TATEMS 2005

If you are UPDATING TATEMS on a NETWORK you will need to re-link to the data file after the update by going to

“Tools->Networking” from within TATEMS

If you go to Tools ->Networking before updating you will be able to see where the data file is located. Write down the path and then use that information after the update to re-link to the data file.

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!  You should always update TATEMS on every workstation on your network, one after another, not at the exact same time… and don't allow any users to use an old version after an update has been done on any workstation on the network. It will cause data to not update or display properly!!
