    Default Where is the QBES Data Stored in the QRB Install Directory?

    I thought it was in <install path>\QReportBuilderv8\Data but I duped everything form that directory, refreshed some tables, and look and there was nothing new created there.

    I think I answered my own question. Passive link tables go to to the OPT file under Application Data/QODBC and imported data must be what goes in the Data directory under QReportBuilderv8...

    I don't want to leave this posting with inaccurate information, so...

    Passive link tables are stored in the user's My Document directory in a folder named QReportBuilderData where each QRB project has it's own folder. This structure is VISTA compatible and uses the VISTA or XP user security model to limit user access which when used with QB user access, limits a user to only the data that they should see.

    The QODBC driver uses it's own OPT tables to optimize data access from QB and those tables are only accessable via the QODBC driver and therefore subject to the proper security.
