Customizing home base

Which file in Pro Series Pro Common files holds the customized column headings I created in my HomeBase?  I want to transfer this file from 2014 to 2015. The PS support shows how to export to cvs the homebase but not how to import it.  Can't I just copy and paste the file from ProWin14 to ProWin15?

i believe it is in the homebase folder (C:\ProWinXX\HomeBase). specifically the views files. views.cdx, views.dbf, and views.mbf. however i tried to copy from 14 to 15 and it did not work for me. i'm able to copy my 14 homebase to other workstations but not across years. so that was a pain to set it up again. maybe you will have better luck.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
