Portable versus Accountant's Copy

Trying to distinguish between the two methods.

Does the Accountant's Copy allow you to specify only a range of data?
For example, 30 months instead of everything going back ten years.

Conversely, does the Portable file replicate the entire database, short of certain templates and such?

Also, in each instance, I imagine you must provide the admin password for the outside user to access the data, right?
Incidentally, we will not incorporate any alterations made by the outside user.
They're using it simply to generate reports and audit transactions.

The accountant copy specifies an ending date, and it can only be opened by the accountant version

A portable copy is the whole file in a compressed version, less things like templates, logo's, memorized reports transactions etc. And the TLG file associated with the main file is deleted, so you need to make a manual back up before you make the portable file copy - a manual back up from the file menu clears transactions in the TLG to the database and should be done periodically anyway. The auto prompt back up does not clear the TLG file.
