Setting up mapped network drives

A mapped network drive is a connection to a shared folder on a Host machine represented by a drive letter in Windows Explorer. Only the workstations need a mapped network drive as the host computer has the Payroll folder on its local drive.

All workstations that are accessing the MYOB Exo Employer Services software should have a network drive mapped on each workstation.

If there are any difficulties when mapping a network drive, MYOB recommends contacting your I.T. department for further assistance.
To map a network drive
  1. Go to one of the Workstations that need to access the MYOB Exo Employer Services software.
  2. Double-click the My Computer icon or press the Windows key and the E key simultaneously.
  3. Go to the Tools menu and choose Map Network Drive.

    If the menu items (such as Tools) are not visible, as occurs in Windows 7, press the ALT key and the menu items will appear.


  4. Choose a drive letter or leave the default selection. It is recommended that all workstations use the same mapped drive letter such as "P:", however the workstations can have different mapped drive letters.
  5. Tick the "Reconnect at logon" option so that the drive letter appears each time the workstation is started.
  6. Click Browse. A list of the computers available on the network should appear. Click on the plus symbol next to the name of the computer that the software has been installed on then highlight the Payrollv folder (or the folder name applicable to the Payroll install).
  7. Click OK on the Browse window then click Finish on the Map Network Drive window.

    If the operating system is Windows Vista or Windows 7, it is recommended to setup the mapped network drive under both the Administrator profile and the user's profile.
