Can the WEN Professional Plus database be shared over a network connection?

The WEN Professional Plus database cannot be shared over a network because the program was not designed as a network version. Should more than one user access the database at the same time, the master file. WEN can get corrupted causing no data to be displayed in any module of WEN Professional Plus. Installing a backed-up database or new database will rectify the corrupted files and sharing the database again will cause corruption in the master file.
