using a copy of a quicken data file without affecting the Cloud version
One of the ways we use Quicken (QM 2007) is to keep the "working" copy of the data file on one machine and occasionally move a copy of it (compressing it, of course) to a second machine that is used to extract the necessary data from it for doing taxes or other things while the working copy is still be used. Occasionally the second machine may be used to make temporary changes to its datafile that aren't intended to be reflected in the original. How can I set the second machine up using "new" Quicken so that while using the copied file it doesn't attempt to make changes to the Cloud accounts associated with the original file? (I actually wouldn't care if it didn't try to sync with the Cloud at all, but I haven't found a way to do that.) I did an experiment by making a duplicate of a data file (with a different name) and opening that, but it clearly linked to the existing (single) Cloud account/file.
