Q10054 - FAQ: How do I move products from one Product Type to another?

You can use the Move Products Utility to move products from one Product Type to another. To use this utility, follow the instructions below:

  1. Close OfficeMate and all other applications on all computers. Note that because you must close all OfficeMate programs before running this utility, we recommend running the utility during nonbusiness hours.
  2. Back up your data!
  3. If you do not have an OMATE32/Utilities folder (for OfficeMate) or OfficeMate/Utilities folder (for OfficeMate Enterprise) folder on your computer, read the related article below for instructions on on how to download the utilities.
  4. Navigate to your OMATE32/Utilities folder (for OfficeMate) or OfficeMate/Utilities folder (for OfficeMate Enterprise). 
  5. Double-click MoveProd.exe.
  6. Ensure that you have backed up your data and click Yes.
  7. Find the products and services for which you want to change product types and select new product types from the drop-down menu under the Move to Product Type column.
    Note: Click Print to print a list of the products and services that are displayed in the table. If you have a large quantity of products and services to move, you might find that reviewing the printed list will help you select the correct products and services to move.
  8. Click Move after you have finished selecting new product types for all the products and services that you want to move.
  9. Click OK.
  10. If you want to move additional products, click Yes; otherwise, click No.

After you have finished moving products from one Product Type to another, you can resume using the OfficeMate Suite or OfficeMate Enterprise.
