[All rollover and carry forward operations must be done using the latest version of SharePro only]

How to create the new database for 1718 ?

  • Run SharePro Administrator Software [SHADMIN] and open configuration setup. Expand the 1st company and select the last accounting Year in the list as shown in the image below. In this image the last year shown is 2014-2015 in your system it should be 2016-2017. Now Click on the “Roll Over Year” button to start the process….

The database needs to be created only once. You can do it from any one of the Companies.

  • At this point, the system prompts you for New DB Location. By default , it will contain the location of the last year’s database, you don’t need to change the location.

  • The Admin software may take a few minutes to create the New Database and migrated all the masters to the next financial year. Have patience and allow the routine to complete the process. Now close and start Admin again and ‘force’ upgrade the database. In case of any errors rerun the Admin upgrade (a sample error is shown below). Once completed, your new Database for 2017-2018 is now ready for use.

Click OK and continue

  • Another error we found was related to access rights for shadmin.mem. Happens on a system (usually the server) which is running SHADMIN for the first time. For this error please give the folder C:\Program Files (86)\shrdbms “Full Rights” to “Everyone” and re-run SHADMIN.
  • Now log into SharePro Client and import the settlement files in the equity segments and create at least one settlement in 2017-2018 for every F&O / Derivative market segment to enable carry forwards of open positions and exposure upload on 3rd morning.













  • Delete your Download Folder usually located in “C:\Program Files (86)\shrdbms\Download”
  • Refresh Data from Others -> Utilities -> Data Refresh
  • Return to previous year 16-17 for the various Carry Forward processes.
Important Note for Systems / IT / admins
  • Please add the new financial year database in the SQL Server Maintenance Plan so that backups of the new database is taken automatically.
  • Whenever you do an Admin upgrade in future, try to upgrade the previous year database, else users going to the previous year sometimes get locked out due to version mismatch errors .

  • However, before you actually start working in the new financial year, you need to Carry Forward Ledger balances, Un-reconciled Bank Entries, Demat Positions, etc., to the new financial year.
