Thanks very much for trying my Business Accounting System software. The
BA System is an accounting software designed especially for a small
service consulting business. It tracks and reports revenues and
billings, accounts receivable, and business expenses for both the
current and prior tax years. Written by a programming consultant, it's
the ideal, inexpensive, accounting software alternative for any small
service-oriented business. The BA is full-featured and a breeze to use,
yet cost $100s less than comparable commercial software. Why settle for
a commercial accounting package that's written for every type of
business that exists when you can have one that was written with your
consulting business specifically in mind...

Included in your distribution set should be the following files:

README.DOC - this file

UPDATES.DOC - Listing of assorted updates and fixes to the BA. Please be
sure you read this file.

FILE_ID.DIZ - Descriptive narrative of the BA

BA.DOC - System Documentation file. It's approximately 100 typed pages
and has page breaks already inserted, so don't try printing it with any
utility that inserts its own page breaks. Other than the kind just
mentioned, use your favorite utility to print the file, or to print the
file with a DOS command, enter the following from the DOS prompt:

COPY BA.DOC PRN or TYPE BA.DOC > PRN

STARTUP.DOC - Handy tips for when you wish to go "live" with this
software.

ORDER.DOC - An Order Form for registering the Business Accounting
System. The order form can also be found at the end of the documentation
file. Please register this software if you wish to utilize it for your
own business needs. See the licensing section in the documentation file
for additional information on this.

BA.EXE and BA.OVL - These are the executable program files. Needless
to say, you can't run the software without these.

Assorted Data files:

BASYSMST.DBF - System Master file
BACLIENT.DBF - Client file
BAITEM.DBF - Item file
BAEXPCAT.DBF - Expense Category data file
BAEXPDET.DBF - Expense Distribution detail file
BAEXPHDR.DBF - Expense Distribution header file
BAINVHDR.DBF - Invoice header file
BAINVDET.DBF - Invoice line item detail file
BAARPAY.DBF - Accounts Receivable Payments file
BAHARPAY.DBF - Historical AR Payments file
BAHEXPDE.DBF - Historical Expense Distribution detail file
BAHEXPHD.DBF - Historical Expense Distribution header file
BAHINVHD.DBF - Historical Invoice header file
BAHINVDE.DBF - Historical Invoice line item detail file
BAWIP.DBF - Client Work-in-Progress file

Assorted Database Text files:

BACLIENT.DBT - Client Notepad database text file
BAINVDET.DBT - Supplemental descriptions for invoice line item detail
BAWIP.DBT - Supplemental descriptions for client work-in-progress

If any of the above files are not present when you start the BA system,
you'll receive a system warning error message informing you of this so
your can rectify this problem.

Index Files - These have the extensions NTX. They may or may not be
present within the Distribution set. If not present, they will
automatically be recreated when you start the system.


//NOTE TO REGISTERED USERS//

If you have received registered system disk(s) from ISI, you should copy
the program files, BA.EXE and BA.OVL, and the pass-key file,
BA_PKEY.DBF, on to the drive/directory of your machine which contains
the BA System files. DO NOT COPY any files from the DATA Directory of
the System Disk unless you intend to overwrite and destroy your
existing data files. The data files provided on the distribution disk
are empty and contain no information whatsoever, so please be careful
when updating your system files. As a precautionary measure, you should
also create a BACK-UP of all BA System files BEFORE installing any
updates.


//A SPECIAL NOTE//

As you utilize this software, you'll probably notice the box explosions
which occur throughout the software. These explosions are probably fast
enough for most all 286 and 386 machines, however, this may not be
tolerable for slower 8088 and 8086 machines. If you wish to speed up the
explosions for use on your machine, set the following DOS environmental
varible in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file or another start-up batch file:

SET BADELAY=OFF

Be sure NOT to place any spaces on either side of the "=" sign,
otherwise this will not work.

If while attempting to set this varible, you receive a DOS error
message, "Out of Environment Space", modify your CONFIG.SYS file to add
or revise the following line:

SHELL= /P /E:n

The "n" in the "/E:' parameter designates the number of bytes available
for environment varibles, such as 128, 256, 384, 512, etc.. Below is an
example of this statement:

SHELL=C:\COMMAND.COM /P /E:512

Once you have modified your CONFIG.SYS file, reboot your computer and
try the "SET BADELAY=OFF" statement again.


//DISABLING SIGN-OFF LOGO//

If you're annoyed by the logo which is displayed upon exit, you may
disable it by adding the following line to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file or
other start-up batch file:

SET BALOGO=OFF

Be sure NOT to place any spaces on either side of the "=" sign,
otherwise this will not work.

//LOADING CLIENT LOOKUP WINDOW ON START-UP//

If you'd like the client look-up window to immediately load upon
start-up of the BA, add the following line to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file or
other start-up batch file:

SET BAJUMP=ON

The client look-up window will then be automatically invoked, with the
records displayed in client name order. This "jump" is only invoked
once, and never again until you exit and restart the BA.

// BRITISH DATE FORMAT SUPPORT

Effective with revision 1.5d, support for the British date format,
MM/DD/YY, has now been added. Please note, the American date format,
DD/MM/YY is the default setting for the BA. To enable the British date
format, add the following line to your your AUTOEXEC.BAT or other
start-up batch file:

SET BA_DATE=BRITISH

All date entries within the BA should respect this setting.


// CUSTOM CLIENT STATEMENT FORMAT

As with invoice printing, you may now customize printing of client
statements. You can do so by specifying Statement Printing as "Custom"
on the System Installation screen. In the "Standard" format, statements
have been designed for a preprinted pin-fed form, which IS NOT a
8.5"*11" form. If you wish to generate statements on plain paper or some
other 8.5"*11" form, you'll need to respond "Yes" to the prompt for
utilizing long statement forms. The format for long forms is also
slightly different from that of the Standard short form. All other
prompts in this area are similar to those prompts within the custom
invoice printing option grid. You can change these settings at any time
by selecting the System Installation option of the Utilities menu.
