I'm a sole proprietor design consultant with many clients. Is there a way to easily segregate each client's data so I don't accidentally grab the wrong one?

One idea might be to create multiple program folders with an entirely different data file in each folder.

The software usually installs in the folder
c:\program files\MiniMrp4

In that folder you'll see files
MiniMrp4.exe
MRP4DATA
USERCFG.AXI

Depending on how your version of Windows is configured you may not see the last 3 letters of those filenames but I'm sure you'll recognize the files.

The file "MiniMrp4" is the minimrp program. The file MRP4DATA is your database containing all the inventory, orders etc.
That other file, usercfg.axi is where minimrp stores your display preferences such as column widths etc.

On your desktop create two folders and name them "Customer_001" and "Customer_002"
In each folder make a copy of the above mentioned files.
Now when you open the folder "Customer_001" and double click "MiniMrp4.exe" in that folder it will use the data file from that folder.
and when you open folder "Customer_002" and double click the "MiniMrp4" file in that folder it will use the data file in that folder.

Any changes you make in one folder does not affect the data in any other folder.

Of course you can name the folders any way you want - maybe the actual customer name. You can also have as many folders as you wish - so, an unlimited number of entirely separate sets of customer data.
