BESTCHEQ (c) USER'S GUIDE

1.0 INTRODUCTION:


BESTCHEQ (c) was written with two goals in mind: SIMPLICITY and POWER.
By achieving these goals, we felt that we would provide the you with
one of the most USEFUL programs on the market. Often, computer users
are very proud of their equipment until someone asks, "BUT CAN IT
BALANCE YOUR CHECKBOOK ?"

Regardless of your financial background, you will now be able to
effectively manipulate data so that it can be understood and
controlled.

In regards to the program environment, the SETUP procedure allows
you to create screen colors and new files without having to enter Disk
Operating System. The MENU structure is logical and easy to follow. We
feel that you should be able to understand the entire program in less
than one hour.

In close, we at COMPUTER TUTORS & PROGRAMMERS believe that we have met
our goal. Any version of BESTCHEQ (c) will provide you with all of the
tools you need for improving your personal and business organization.

As always, we wholeheartedly welcome recommendations from our users.

At startup, the above menu will be displayed. You may proceed in one
of four ways:

1. NEW USER or CREATE NEW FILE: Type in any 4-digit NUMBER and hit
ENTER. The number you enter has no effect on the program because you
will proceed directly to the SETUP menu. See 10.0.

2. RETRIEVE CURRENT FILE: After you have gone through the SETUP
procedure and have created a FILE, enter your 4-digit ID-CODE NUMBER
and hit ENTER. If you make a mistake use the cursor to backup.

BESTCHEQ (c) will only accept NUMBERS for an ID-CODE NUMBER.

3. RETRIEVE ARCHIVED FILE: To review an ARCHIVE FILE, enter your
4-digit ID-CODE NUMBER followed by the month and year of the requested
file. Thus, if your ID-CODE NUMBER is 1111 and you would like to
review the reconciled transactions from March 1984 you would enter
11110384 (1111+03+84).

4. F4 EXIT: Before returning to DOS, BESTCHEQ (c) will look for a
program called BMENU.EXE. This is the name of our program to
integrate control of COMPUTER TUTORS & PROGRAMMERS programs. If a file
by the name BMENU.EXE is not found, a "FILE NOT FOUND" error will be
generated and control will be passed to DOS. Don't worry, the error
is harmless. However, if you know that you will always be running a
certain program after BESTCHEQ (c), then rename that program BMENU.EXE
and it will automatically execute. (See your DOS manual for
instructions on the REN[ame] command.)

to review your checking account or savings account. Every ID-CODE
NUMBER corresponds to two accounts - a CHECKING ACCOUNT and a SAVINGS
ACCOUNT.

b. NEW USER or CREATE NEW FILE: Select either F1 CHECKING or F2
SAVINGS. Your entry will have no effect on the program because you
will proceed directly to the SETUP menu. See 10.0.

2. F3 NEW FILE: Return control to GET FILE menu. See 2.0.

Regardless of whether you selected F1 CHECKING or F2 SAVINGS in
the MAIN MENU, control will be passed to this menu. Procedures are
exactly the same for both the CHECKING and the SAVINGS ACCOUNTS. The
bottom of the screen will show the current ACCOUNT. You may proceed
in one of eight ways:

1. F1 PREVIOUS MENU: Returns control to MAIN MENU. See 3.0.

You may switch accounts by "flipping" between the ACCOUNT MENU and the
MAIN MENU. Thus, if you are currently using the FILE 1111 CHECKING
ACCOUNT and you would like to view FILE 1111 SAVINGS ACCOUNT, return
to MAIN MENU and enter the alternate ACCOUNT. See 3.1a.

2. F2 BALANCE INQUIRY: Prints the last transaction in the current
ACCOUNT. Retains control in the ACCOUNT MENU (current menu).

3. F3 DEPOSIT: Record DEPOSIT to current account. Transfers
control to INPUT DATA. See 5.0.

4. F4 TRANSACTION INQUIRY: Transactions in the current account
will print to the screen. BESTCHEQ (c) will print one SCREEN of
transactions, pause and await a command. You may proceed in one of
three ways:

a. HIT ANY KEY: BESTCHEQ (c) will print the next screen of
transactions, pause and await a command.

b. Hit Q: BESTCHEQ (c) will print all the transactions in the
current account to the screen without pausing.

c. F1: Returns control to the ACCOUNT MENU.

After all of the transactions in the current account are printed to
the SCREEN, you may proceed in one of two ways:

d. F1: Returns control to ACCOUNT MENU.

e. Hit P: Transactions in the current account will print to the
PRINTER (LPT1). Control will be returned to ACCOUNT MENU.

If you entered to INPUT DATA for a DEPOSIT or a WITHDRAWAL,
BESTCHEQ(c) will ask you how many transactions you wish to enter.
(TRANSFERS are limited to one transaction.) If you enter "0",
control will be transferred to ACCOUNT MENU. See 4.0.

BESTCHEQ (c) will begin by showing the last transaction in the current
account. DEPOSITS, WITHDRAWALS and TRANSFERS will all require the
following four pieces of information:

1. DATE: Enter the DATE of the bank transaction.

2. RECEIPT: Enter the RECEIPT number of the bank transaction. This
can be a MAC machine number, check number or your personal code for
passbook deposits.

3. DESCRIPTION: Enter a fourteen character/number DESCRIPTION of
your transaction. Being consistent will facilitate use of the FIND
function. For example, if you frequently deal with JOHN DOE, by
always enter "DOE" BESTCHEQ (c) will FIND all the possible
transactions in one query. If you use "DOE" during one entry, then
"J.DOE" and "JOHN DOE" in following entries, you will have to do three
queries to FIND all of the transactions involving JOHN DOE. See 8.2.

4. AMOUNT: Enter the AMOUNT of the transaction. You need not enter
the decimal.

account (whether CHECKING or SAVINGS) and the same AMOUNT will be
ADDED TO the alternate account. Control will be automatically passed
to ACCOUNT MENU. See 4.0.


When all information is entered, you will be asked if all the
information is correct. You may proceed in one of three ways:

a. Enter Y(es): You will proceed to enter the next transaction. If
the last transaction has been entered, BESTCHEQ (c) will write all the
entered transaction(s) to your current file. Control will be passed
to ACCOUNT MENU. See 4.0.

b. Enter N(o): Your previous input will be erased and you may
reenter the data.

9.


Upon entry into RECONCILIATION MENU the first transaction in the
current account will be displayed. You may proceed in one of four
ways:

1. F1 PREVIOUS MENU: Returns control to ACCOUNT MENU. See 4.0.

2a. F2 GOTO: Each transaction is assigned a number. If you
previously printed out a transaction list you will be able to "jump"
to various transactions to review or change your entry. The currently
displayed transaction will be marked with the status "G" so that you
know from which transaction you "jumped."

b. MISTAKES: If you find that you made a mistake in a previously
reconciled (or unreconciled) transaction use the F2 GOTO Key to
return to that transaction. Remember that the transaction from which
you jump will be marked with status "G", and thus if you "jump"
forward the transaction from which you "jumped" will not be
reconciled. It is recommend that when you GOTO a previous transaction
you return to the spot from which you "jumped" by re-reconciling each
subsequent transaction. This will not be difficult for all the
transactions will be displayed with the status marking.

3. F3 RECONCILE: If the displayed transaction is present on your
bank statement and you would like to reconcile it, BESTCHEQ (c) will
mark the transaction with status "R" which will be displayed with the
transaction if you GOTO it later. Only transactions with the status
"R" will be RECONCILED.

4. F4 SKIP/UNRECONCILE: If the currently displayed transaction is
not on your bank statement and you would NOT like to reconcile it,
BESTCHEQ (c) will mark the transaction with a "S" which will be
displayed with the transaction if you GOTO it later.

9.0 RECONCILIATION MENU (continue)


After the last transaction in the current file has been RECONCILED or
SKIPPED, BESTCHEQ (c) will prompt you for the following nine pieces of
information. The information entered in response to the following
questions will not become part of the ARCHIVED file, but it will
affect the account balance. You must answer numbers 5, 6 and 13. The
other questions are provided for mistakes and special charges; in most
cases they can be answered with a carriage return.



5. DATE OF THE BANK STATEMENT: Enter date of bank statement.

6. BALANCE PER BANK STATEMENT: Ending balance at DATE OF BANK
STATEMENT.

7. ERRONEOUS REMOVAL OF FUNDS BY BANK: Bank erroneously removed
funds from your account which you did not authorize.

8. ERRONEOUS DEPOSITS OF FUNDS BY BANK: Bank erroneously deposited
funds into your account which you did not authorize.

9. UNRECORDED INTEREST OR PROCEEDS ON ACCOUNT: Bank correctly
deposited funds into your account for interest or other monies which
were due to you. As an ALTERNATIVE you may use the DEPOSIT function.
If the DEPOSIT function is used the transaction will be archived with
the other monthly transactions but the monies will not show up
separately on the BANK STATEMENT. It is a matter of preference.

10. ERRONEOUS REMOVAL OF FUNDS ON BOOKS: You erroneously removed
funds from the account. This is provided as a convenience; the AMEND
function is the preferable method of correcting mistakes. See 7.0.

11. BANK SERVICE CHARGES: Record any overdraft charges or checking
fees which are automatically deducted from your bank account. As an
ALTERNATIVE you may use the WITHDRAWAL function to remove the funds.
See 4.5.

12. ERRONEOUS DEPOSITS OF FUNDS ON BOOKS: You erroneously
deposited funds to the account. This is provided as a convenience;
the AMEND function is the preferable method of correcting mistakes.
See 7.0.

13. IS INFORMATION CORRECT: When all information is entered you
will be asked if the entered information is correct. You may proceed
in one of three ways:

a. Enter Y(es): BESTCHEQ (c) will print the RECONCILIATION to the
SCREEN. See 9.10.

b. Enter N(o): Your previous input will be erased and you may
reenter the data.

c. F1: For any reason you may return to the FILE MAINTENANCE
MENU. See 6.0.

USER SUPPORTED SOFTWARE


CONCEPT:

User Supported Software is an experiment in distributing and
advertising quality computer software by allowing users to freely
copy and distribute. If the user desires, he/she may register with the
authoring company in order to receive the rights and benefits which
accrue to registered users. Thus, the authors can focus their
attention on creating new products.

The CONCEPT thrives upon the involvement and support of the user
population. Often, the software is of a very high quality and takes a
great amount of time and energy to produce. Registration helps defray
these costs.

In return for registering BESTCHEQ (c), you will receive a new diskette
with the latest version of BESTCHEQ (c). Imbedded in the program will
be a unique ID Number which identifies you. Whenever new registrants
use your ID Number on their registration form, you will be entitled to
a $5.00 COMMISSION. Thus, BESTCHEQ (c) will pay for itself if JUST
FOUR new registrants use your ID Number (of course, you also received a
new diskette). Moreover, you will receive any UPDATES of the product
and informational bulletins on obtaining other quality software. We
believe that the $20.00 Registration Fee is one of the best INVESTMENTS
you can make. The money-making potential is enormous for frequent
bulletin board users.

At COMPUTER TUTORS & PROGRAMMERS, we direct our energies toward
producing powerful, yet easy to use applications software. If you
enjoyed BESTCHEQ (c), chances are you'll enjoy our other software
opportunities.

In any case, please share this product with others. THANK YOU.
