Finance Lab Server

Access

Many of the databases that we subscribe to are available on an networked fileserver available on the Rotman intranet. In order to access the fileserver from a Rotman IP, please do the following:

  • Open Windows (File) Explorer
  • Choose Tools
  • Choose Map Network Drive
  • Choose drive Q:, enter path \\FLSERVER-01\SHARED
  • Check Reconnect at login, click OK

Databases are available in the Q:Research_data directory. Please note that all of these files are flat ASCII files and will require some sort of ASCII viewer, parser, or other application to view the data. These files are read-only, in you may need to copy them to your hard drive in order to use/manipulate them.
