How To Share A Layer With Other Users In The Office

To share a layer with other users in the office, store the database containing the layer in a location that all users have access to (you can see where the database is by right clicking the layer and clicking Layer Properties). If it’s currently not in an accessible location, you can either move the file and reopen it in Quickmap using the instructions below, or you can copy the data from the existing layer into a new layer that’s stored in the shared location. Once the layer is stored in a shared location, do the following on each PC:

  1. Click File -> New Layer
  2. Add a layer from existing database (navigate to the database in the shared location)
  3. Click on the Existing table, then click Add Layer
  4. Cancel next screen
