Carry over "My Menu" items each year
Idea shared by Chery Cooper - November 20, 2015 at 6:23 AM
BLS-2016/Pro v. 28.05.04, MDB 2016 v. 12.1.8, Win 7 (64-bit)
I've noted that for the past 2 years (this and last) the "My Menu" items do not get populated when transitioning from one year's BLS to the next. Is there something I could be doing to have this happen?  If not, this is a suggestion that there be a way to import/copy (whatever) the My Menu items.  Thanks!

You can copy the menu from 2015 to 2016 from the maintenance menu on the opening screen. It should be done automatically when you install 2016. If it doesn't copy over, then the Menu data is not in the proper folder for BLS to see it and copy it.
On my system, it is under C:\Users\Public\Documents\BLS2015\System. The file is MyMenu2015.dat.
You should be able to copy the menu through the maintenance menu on the opening screen.
BLS-2017 properly copies BLS-2016's My Menu using the Maintenance option to do so. There was some additional work regarding this feature and that particular code is not being backported to BLS-2016.
