Welcome to the world of C A N S !

C A N S is an industrial strength rolodex and tickler file
system - yet it is tame enough for anyone to use.

C A N S takes productivity to the MAX !

C A N S goes far beyond mailing labels and appointment
scheduling.

C A N S provides on-line help for all critical prompts.

C A N S allows you to bypass the main menu for quick access to
your Names and Appointments. The system requires very few
'special' key strokes. Virtually ALL 'special' keys are displayed
for you on the screen at the time they are active.

You may maintain important dates for business, taxes, etc.
indefinitely.

You can set-up your own JobJar within C A N S for non-scheduled
'to do's' - and delete them when YOU want to!

C A N S will roll designated dates forward to next year so that
you enter recurring annual events only once.

You may retrieve appointments either by date OR by having C A N S
search for key words or phrases included by you in the
appointment.

View your appointments on your monitor or print them 'hardcopy'.
You may print appointments on a separate page for each day of any
time frame (weekly, monthly, etc.)- - whatever suits your needs
the most.

C A N S alerts you to potential scheduling conflicts and even
allows you to browse through your calendar to find an appropriate
time which will accommodate your needs.

You may even have C A N S report your daily activities to you on
demand - at the 'c prompt'. Place the appropriate command in your
autoexec.bat file and let C A N S inform you first thing each
morning of your schedule for that day ALONG WITH activities
scheduled for succeeding days for which you have requested lead
time!




C A N S rolodex allows you to maintain an extensive name file -
both in the number of entries and also, the data you most want
to keep with a contact. You may archive names which you do not
frequently use, clean-up your rolodex for more efficient use,
and then retrieve these archived names WHEN YOU WANT THEM.

You may organize and 'work' your names in groups of related
entries. Virtually all of C A N S' utilities and reports are
based on natural groupings as determined by you.

You may even make appointments from within your rolodex.

Document events from within your rolodex based on the
current date and time.

And, of course, C A N S allows you to print mailing labels,
rolodex cards, and even create a disk file of your names suitable
for mail merges with many popular word processing systems.

Included in this package is a file you may wish to use to
facilitate mail merges utilizing Wordperfect (ver. 5.1). Creating
a secondary file has never been so easy!

C A N S will even assist you in converting your present rolodex
from any other database system which exports your information in
the prescribed format.

For the business manager who is faced with efficiently
managing associates, employees, vendors, sales leads, social as
well as business contacts, C A N S WILL do the job!

Put your Names and Appointments under one roof. Organize your
affairs in ONE efficient system that gives you so much.

Definition of SHAREWARE

Shareware distribution gives the users a chance to try software
before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue
using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs
differ on details - - some request registration while others
require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With
registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue
using the software to an updated program with printed manual.

Copyright laws apply to Shareware and commercial software, and
the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific
exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished
programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are
of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs
and bad ones !) The main difference is the method of
distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy
and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a
specific group. For example, some authors require written
permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their
Shareware.

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You
should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook,
whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes
fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy.
And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware
has the ultimate money-back guarantee - - if you don't use the
product, you don't pay for it.

DISCLAIMER - AGREEMENT

Users of C A N S must accept this disclaimer of warranty :
C A N S is supplied as is. The author disclaims all warranties,
expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the
warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose.
The author assumes no liability for damages, direct or conse-
quential, which may result from the use of C A N S.

C A N S is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge to
the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your friends,
but please do not give it away altered or as a part of another
system. The essence of "user-supported" software is to provide
personal computer users with quality software without high
prices, yet to provide incentive for programmers to continue to
develop new products. If you find this program useful and find
that you are using C A N S and continue to use C A N S after a
reasonable trial period, you must make a registration payment of
$35 to Jim Faughnan. The $35 registration fee will license one
copy for use on any one computer at any one time. You must treat
this software just like a book. An example is that this software
may be used by any number of people and may be freely moved from
one computer location to another, so long as there is no
possibility of it being used at one location while it's being
used at another. Just as a book cannot be read by two different
persons at the same time.

Commercial users of C A N S must register and pay for their
copies of C A N S within 30 days of first use or their license is
withdrawn. Site-License arrangements may be made by contacting
Jim Faughnan.

You are encouraged to pass a copy of C A N S along to your
friends for evaluation. Please encourage them to register their
copy if they find that they can use it. All registered users will
receive a copy of the latest version of the C A N S system.

PACKING LIST

The following 14 files are included :

Main.EXE - The C A N S executable program. This program will
create 2 additional files - Calendar.MDB and Names.MDB. These are
the files that will contain your data. A third file, Archive.MDB,
will also be created if you wish to use the archiving features of
C A N S.

Cans.BAT - This is a batch file which loads the Terminate Stay
Resident (TSR) program necessary to run Main.EXE.

Proisamd.EXE - The TSR noted above which "drives" Main.EXE along
with the following 2 files.

Isampack.EXE - A utility which compresses your data files after
deletions have occurred. Its use is more fully explained below.

Isamrepr.EXE - A utility which may be utilized in the event
damage occurs to your data files (brown outs, etc.). You will be
alerted to its need by the system. Its use is also more fully
explained below.

Pack.BAT and Repair.BAT - 2 batch files which load the TSR and
run the appropriate operation for you. These bat files are
started at the 'c prompt' and are not available while C A N S
is running.

Pack.BAT creates a backup file of the file being compressed
BEFORE the compression begins.

To run the compression operation, at the 'c prompt' key :
pack Calendar (or)
pack Names (or)
pack Archive
and then press ENTER.

To run the repair operation, at the 'c prompt' key :
repair Calendar (or)
repair Names (or)
repair Archive
and then press ENTER.

Install.DOC - Notes on a quick installation.

Wincans.EXE - A Windows (3.1) launch pad for C A N S.
Please see the Appendices for further discussion.



5



Manager.MDB - A file containing, among other things, all the help
messages. C A N S will NOT operate without this file in the
'current working directory'.

In the event you fail to copy this file to the 'current working
directory' (i.e., an alternate configuration), C A N S will still
attempt to open this file. In this attempt, C A N S will actually
create a file named 'Manager.MDB'. This file will NOT have the
essential data necessary for C A N S to operate. You would then
simply copy the valid 'Manager.MDB' to your alternate directory.

Cansutl.EXE is an executable file which automates the 'packing'
and 'repairing' noted above. This program may be initiated at the
'c:prompt' by keying cansutl and pressing ENTER. You may also
include this program in any batch file (i.e., Cans.BAT).

You can't overuse cansutl.exe!
If you find that your use of C A N S is occasional, you may wish
to include the cansutl command within Cans.BAT.

If, however, you tend to use C A N S frequently or your data
files are relatively extensive, consider placing the cansutl.exe
command in a daily exiting routine which you might run
immediately before 'shutting down' for the day.

Namesmrg.MST - A master file that may be used in a mail merge
operation in conjunction with Wordperfect (ver 5.1). This will
be explored in greater detail in the section of this document
covering the utilities offered by C A N S.

First.BAT - A batch file which may be inserted in your
autoexec.BAT either 'as is' or line by line (depending upon which
version of DOS you use). Please see your DOS manual for extended
instructions.

Manual.DOC - The file you are now reading.











6



INSTALLATION

Installing C A N S is as simple as locating all of the files in a
single sub-directory. For purposes of this document, I will
assume the sub-directory 'c:\cans'. You may, of course, use any
directory name that suits your needs. The file, Cans.BAT, is set
to operate in the directory 'c:\cans' so that if you choose to
use another sub-directory, you will need to modify Cans.BAT (and
other batch files) appropriately.

In addition, Cans.BAT and First.BAT may be located in a directory
other than 'c:\cans' provided that your PATH is set to search for

that directory.

Some computer users establish a separate directory for batch
(BAT) files and include that directory in their PATH statement.
This enables you to 'call' C A N S from any directory on your
hard disk.

Cansutl.EXE expects to find essential files in 'c:\cans'
sub-directory. If you choose to locate C A N S in a sub-directory
other than 'c:\cans', Cansutl.EXE will NOT work for you.
You must instead use pack.bat and repair.bat after modifying
these files for the correct current working directory.

Please see the appendices for alternate installation suggestions
and possibilities.




















7


ACCESSING C A N S

C A N S may be accessed in any one of 6 ways :

A) Using Cans.BAT with no arguments. This method takes you
to the main menu. This is the only way to access the main
menu.
Example :
Enter at the 'c prompt', 'cans' and then press enter.

The menus may be manipulated by either using the UP / DOWN
arrow keys OR by pressing the highlighted letter for the
desired menu choice.

B) Using Cans.BAT with arguments in the following ways
bypasses the main menu for quick access :

i) cans a - Takes the user directly to the portion of
C A N S for making/updating your Appointments file.

ii) cans n - Takes the user directly to the portion of
C A N S for entering/updating your Names file.

iii) cans v - Displays appointments on the monitor for
that day (based on the system clock/calendar).
If your version of DOS allows, you may enter
'call cans v' (without the quote marks) in your
autoexec.BAT file so that your schedule is
presented to you each morning when you turn on
your computer. First.BAT, included in this
package, does this for you.

















8


iv)
a) cans 'name' (where 'name' represents an entry
in your Names file). Takes the user directly
to the portion of C A N S for updating/viewing

entries in the Names file, displaying the first entry
to match 'name'. 'name' must consist of 2 or more letters
but does not have to be the entire entry in your Names
file.

b) cans *'name' Attempts to locate the entry with
the Surname matching 'name' ( as described above ).


Please note that these last 5 methods to enter C A N S
are limited - for the most part, you are not allowed
beyond that portion you access directly.

C A N S may also be installed on Windows as a non-
Windows application. All of the above configurations will work

as a non-Windows application with the exception of the last 2.




























9


GENERAL NOTES

C A N S allows you to "back-track" or retrace your steps through
the menu by using the 'escape key' (or you may alternately use
the Function 1 (F1) key).

C A N S offers 'full screen' processing for most data entry
screens. This means that you may use the UP/Down arrows to
navigate the input screen. The exceptions to this are :

Names, edit mode : C A N S prompts you for the line
to edit. In effect, there is no navigating required.

Appointments, add and edit mode : Input of the date,
time and duration require sequential input so that C A N S
may :

Alert you to any potential conflicts early on so you don't
waste time inputing data and THEN find a conflict.

Present your Calendar based on the date you just entered
within a window which allows scrolling.

C A N S utilizes the 'overstrike' edit facility. In order to
insert a character, you must first position the cursor at that
point at which you wish to place the character, press INSERT and
then enter the character.

Other Function keys are available when displayed on the monitor.
They are :

F2 - Start Over. If you are partially through making an
entry and decide you don't like what you've entered,
press F2. C A N S takes you back to the beginning of the
entry, deletes what had been entered and allows you to
start over. Any material you may have keyed in for that
specific entry is lost.

F3 - Toggles between ADD mode and EDIT mode in Names and
Appointments.

F4 - Erases the entire line which the cursor is on at the
time you press F4.





10


F5 and Alt+F5 - F5 allows the user to make an appointment
from Names, without having to exit Names. Alt+F5 allows
the user to document an event (possibly a telephone call,
etc.) from Names. Both of these keys are discussed in more
detail in the section on Names.

F6 and Alt+F6 - F6 toggles the index in the Names file so
that you may retrieve entries by either the first name or
surname.

Alt+F6 highlights that portion of the name which you have
established as the surname.

F7 - Commit. In Names and Appointments, this key tells
C A N S to accept the data as input, whether in EDIT or ADD
mode.

F8 - Previous. In edit mode, displays the previous entry. If
your scrolling activity 'runs off' the beginning of your
file, C A N S will beep to let you know and recycles to the
end of the file.

F9 - Next. In edit mode, displays the next entry. Useful for
scrolling through your names or appointments. If your
scrolling activity 'runs off' the end of your file, C A N S
will beep to let you know and recycles to the beginning of
the file.

F10 - Delete. Deletes an ENTIRE entry from your Names
or Calendar file.

ALT+F10 - In Names, EDIT mode, deletes the corresponding
entry in the Archive.MDB file if the entry exists in the
Archive.MDB file. C A N S will compare the Name - 1st Line
in the 'working' Names.MDB to the entries in Archive.MDB in
an attempt to make a match. If an exact match is made, then
BOTH entries are deleted; otherwise, only the entry in your
'working' rolodex is deleted.

ALT+V - The alt key pressed SIMULTANEOUSLY with 'v' in
Appointments at the time input line will open a window
which you may use to 'scroll' your appointments.
A message will appear in the upper right hand portion
of the screen when this facility is available.

ALT+H - Provides on-line help. A reminder in the upper
right hand section of the screen or dialog box will let
you know Help is immediately available.
11


DATA INPUT SCREENS - Names AND Appointments

Both Names and Appointments 'open' in EDIT mode. C A N S assumes
that after a point you will be accessing C A N S more to retrieve
previously entered data than enter new items.

The screens in EDIT mode and ADD mode are virtually identical in
appearance. The active mode is indicated at the top center of
each screen.

In addition, in EDIT mode, in both Names and Appointments,
C A N S is prompting you for an item to view or edit.

Please note that when searching for an item to retrieve in
response to your request, C A N S will return an item that is
either 'equal to or greater than' your prompt. With the exception
of C A N S requirement that you enter 2 or more letters when
accessing C A N S from the 'c prompt' to retrieve a name, this
discussion in concept is applicable to Names - EDIT mode, and the
quick access for Names.

Example -
Suppose that you have the following first names in your rolodex :
Jack, Jamie, John, Jon

If you enter at C A N S prompt in edit mode "J", C A N S
would return Jack.
If you enter "Ja", C A N S will again return Jack.

C A N S operates in this manner in either 'index' - that is,
when it searches for the first name OR surname.

If, at C A N S' prompt for an entry in either Names or
Appointments, you press the 'ENTER' key with no entry made by
you, C A N S returns the first entry in your file. You may, at
any point, use the function keys F8 and F9 to scroll through your
file.











12


In Appointments, - EDIT mode, C A N S prompts you for the date of
the event you wish to review. If you know the exact date, enter
that date. However, you may wish to enter a date a few days in
advance of the date you believe to be the actual date you want
and then scroll forward to be sure.

After you have completed the date, C A N S then expects you to
specify a time. If you know the time, enter that time. If you are
unsure of the time, you may enter 0 (numeral) and C A N S will
return the first event for that date. You may then have C A N S
scroll through your calendar to locate your appointment.

Alternatively, you may ask C A N S to open it's window and show
you all scheduled events for any given day by pressing ALT+V when
the cursor is positioned on the time input line (after first
giving C A N S the date).

You may scroll through that day's appointments by using the
UP/DOWN arrows, if your calendar is sufficiently full. You may
also use the function keys F8 and F9 while within the window
to scroll to the previous/next day.

Please beware - When in C A N S' window in EDIT mode, the date
which results from your scrolling is the date C A N S uses to
add or update your appointment.


The remainder of this document is sub-divided according
to the menu system. In these sections, each menu item will be
covered in more detail.


















13


CALENDAR

Project-a-Month - C A N S allows you to view any month from
January, 1980 through December, 2100 inclusive.

C A N S prompts you for a date. The acceptable date formats are :

MMYY - Example : 0692 for June, 1992
or
MMYYYY - Example : 032010 for March, 2010

When you use the shortened version, C A N S assumes the
20th century and adds 1900 to the YY as supplied.

If you should use any other format or dates outside the
indicated ranges, C A N S will beep and issue a friendly
reminder that you have not used the proper format.

Days Between 2 Dates - C A N S will calculate the number of days
between 2 dates when you provide the dates in the proper format
and range.

Format -
MMDDYY - Example : 062692 for June 26, 1992
or
MMDDYYYY - Example : 03152010 for March 15, 2010

Range -
January 1, 1980 through December 31, 2010, inclusive.

C A N S provides 2 active function keys :
F1 - C A N S terminates your session, as does the
escape key (ESC).

F2 - C A N S permits you to start your current
entry over. The existing entry is erased.












14


Calendar Arithmetic - C A N S will perform addition and
subtraction to dates provided by you and return the
resulting date.

The proper formats and range along with the active
function keys are the same as noted above.

C A N S prompts you for the BASE date and then request
the NUMBER of DAYS.

C A N S default arithmetic operator is the ADD
sign. You may, however, SUBTRACT any number of
days by supplying a leading or trailing minus sign
("-") to you entry.

If the RESULTING date is outside of the allowable
range, C A N S is forgiving - it will beep and
prompt you for another NUMBER of DAYS.






























15


APPOINTMENTS

C A N S provides a simple 'tickler' function which you may
turn into a powerful, yet flexible, scheduling tool. Please
read the following thoroughly before getting too far along
into APPOINTMENTS.

The essential elements of an appointment are the date and
event. C A N S will accept no less!

You may use C A N S reporting feature to list appointments
based on a key word or phrase. In developing your own
personal approach to making appointments, this selective
function of C A N S will enhance your ability to retrieve
dates and appointments by grouping, subject matter,
individual name, etc; limited only by your imagination!

Please note - - When accessing Appointments from the main
menu, C A N S goes directly into EDIT mode. You may, of
course, change to ADD mode.

The elements of an appointment are :

Date
Format - MMDDYY - Example : 021591
MMDDYYYY - Example : 07252010

Range - January 1, 1980 through December 31, 2100
inclusive.

C A N S will return the appropriate date in the
form : Friday, Feb 15, 1991, or
Sunday, Jul 25, 2100

Time
Format - HH.MM [A][P] - Example : 1.5 A
returns 1:50 A.M.
The default is P.M.

Range - Hours 1 to 12
Minutes 0 to 59

NOTE : Many dates do not require a time (i.e.,
Mom's birthday) and so C A N S permits
appointments with no time. However, you must
enter a 0 (number, zero) to indicate to the
system that no time is desired for this
entry.
16


When in EDIT mode, you must enter a date and time both in valid
form to retrieve an appointment which matches those
parameters or the next appointment in line chronologically.


Example :
You wish to see the first appointment for May 5, 1993.
Enter '050593' for the date, 0 (numeral) for the time -
C A N S presents the first appointment that is equal to
or later than those parameters. If no appointment has
been made for May 5, 1993, C A N S will locate the next
appointment and present it to you.


If you wish to merely 'scroll' through your appointments, you
may of course use the appropriate function keys (F8, F9)
without the need to enter a date and time.

Once C A N S presents the appointment on the monitor (in EDIT
mode), you may press ENTER at the date input line and, also,
at the time input line to advance to the portion of the
appointment you wish to edit or update.


When adding or updating Appointments, you may have C A N S
display appointments for any given day in a window
when the cursor is positioned at the time input line.
Simply simultaneously press ALT+V and C A N S will
display your appointments for that day or alert you that
your CALENDAR IS EMPTY.

In addition, you may 'scroll' within this window to earlier
or later dates by using the F8 and F9 keys, respectively.

You may also 'scroll' the appointments WITHIN the
window by using the up arrow, down arrow, page up and page
down keys.

PLEASE BEAR IN MIND, the date which results from your
'scrolling' activity is the date which C A N S uses to
ADD your appointment or update an existing appointment
in EDIT mode.






17


Duration
Use this feature to record the anticipated length
of the appointment. If you attempt to make an
appointment at a later time which conflicts with
this one, C A N S will warn you of the potential
conflict but will NOT prevent you from completing
the appointment as you entered it.

Format - HH.MM - Example : 1.25
returns 1 Hr 25 Mins

Range - Minutes may not exceed 59.
Hours - 1 to 12, inclusive.

C A N S cannot accept an appointment which extends
to the next day (i.e., an 11.00 P.M. start time
with a duration greater than 59 minutes),



Lead
C A N S provides reports of your appointments on
the date of the appointment. However, if you
would like to 'look ahead', C A N S is able to
report upcoming activities. Tell C A N S how much
lead time (in days) you wish and it will alert you
of the upcoming event for each of those days when
you access C A N S using the 'cans v' command.

Range - 0 to 365 days.

Perm
C A N S utilities provide means to delete
appointments in blocks as they become stale.
(You may, of course, delete individual
appointments in the edit mode by pressing function
key 10 (F10) ). C A N S is able to retain selected
appointments during this process based on your
needs.

C A N S also provides selective reporting based
on your PERM designation. You may exclude certain
types of appointments.





18


C A N S recognizes 5 types of permanency, 4 of
which you may enter/edit. The 5th type is entered
for you during DocuDate (explained further in the
section on Names) and cannot be updated or
changed. It may, however, be deleted by pressing
the F10 function key.

Blank - No entry is required. Typical
examples of this are : lunch with Bob,
tennis lesson, staff meeting, etc.
These appointments will be erased during the
deletion process.

JobJar - Enter an "A" (without the quote
marks). Use this type of appointment for
non scheduled reminders; i.e., get hair cut,
wash car, clip hedges,etc.

You may enter a time for this activity.
However, C A N S will set the time to '0'
when you commit the Appointment.
These events may be deleted ONLY by using
the F10 function key in EDIT mode.

C A N S will automatically update all
events to the current date based on the
system date. You are not required to
manually perform this task.

Permanent - Enter a "P" (without the quote
marks). Use this type for recurring ANNUAL
appointments which you wish to retain
indefinitely. Typical examples include :
Aunt Bertha's birthday, Mom and Dad's wedding
anniversary, etc.

During the deletion process, C A N S will
roll the entry forward to next year.










19


Tax, Travel - Enter a "T" (without the quote
marks). Use this type to document any
appointment for indefinite retention.

During the deletion process, C A N S will
give you the option to delete "T" entries.

NOTE : This is an excellent means to
assist salespersons in retaining travel
information for tax purposes and, also,
maintaining a history of sales calls
made.

You may consider starting a Calendar.MDB
file the first of each year and, in
effect, archiving your appointments on
an annual basis.

Simply copy the Calendar.MDB to a
separate directory or floppy disk; then
delete any "T" entries in your 'working
copy' of Calendar.MDB.


Event - Required entry to complete an
appointment.

The Comments are identical to Event in
usage and are therefore discussed here
with the Event.
(Please note : Comments are NOT required to
complete an appointment.)

You may enter freeform up to 50 characters for
the Event and each Comment (a total of 150).

C A N S reporting features allow you to
search appointments for a key word, phrase or
group of words. These key words, phrases, or
group of words may be embedded in the Event
or either Comment and C A N S will locate
that particular appointment (or appointments)
for you.



20


NAMES


C A N S will let you maintain an extensive and complete
Names file. You may retrieve entries while in C A N S or
from DOS, at the 'c prompt' using either the first name or
surname (as defined below). You may group Names for reports,
for mail merges, export Names by group and even archive
Names by grouping.

Please note - - When accessing Names from the main menu,
C A N S goes directly into EDIT mode. You may, of course,
change to ADD mode.

C A N S makes it easy for you to make/record appointments
from Names. Press function key 5 (F5) and C A N S takes you
to Appointments, uses the name as the event and positions
the cursor at the date input line. Once you have completed
your activities in Appointments, C A N S returns you to
the place in Names you started from.

NOTE : If you wish to make a phone call and don't
recall the number of the party you wish to call,
retrieve the name (by first name or surname) either
from the 'c prompt' or while you are in C A N S.

If you wish to set up an appointment, simply press F5
and you are right there.

If you wish to document an event or call, SIMULTANEOUSLY
press the alt key and function key 5 (ALT+F5). C A N S takes
you to Appointments, uses the name as the event, uses the
system time and date to fill in the Appointment details and
positions the cursor at the first comment line for you to
complete any notes you may wish to add. Once you have
completed your activities in Appointments, C A N S returns
you to the place in Names you started from.

It is C A N S intent to preserve these documented events as
they are recorded. To that end, these DocuDates MAY NOT
be edited or changed. You are, of course, able to delete
them either individually or in groups.




21


Two items are crucial for effectively using Names to its
utmost !

1) The Surname - Established by placing an asterisk("*")
while in either ADD mode or EDIT mode immediately
before the portion of the name you wish to 'designate'
as the surname.
2 examples :
Albert W. Smith
ABC Enterprises

Entered as - Albert W. *Smith
*ABC Enterprises

C A N S will 'strip' the asterisk from your entry when
you press ENTER, never to be seen again. If you wish to
check your designation of the surname, you may press
SIMULTANEOUSLY the alt key and function key 6 (ALT+F6).
The surname is highlighted for you.

C A N S uses the surname to alphabetize your rolodex
and also for most retrieval purposes.

2) The Grouping - Establishes blocks of related entries
(i.e., family members, business associates, sales
leads, etc.)

Valid group identifiers are single alphabetic
characters. C A N S is case sensitive in this
instance, i.e., "A" (uppercase) is distinctly
different from "a" (lowercase). In effect, you may
maintain 52 different groups of names.

C A N S provides internally an index of group
identifiers to assist you in 'tracking' your groups.
You may press the 'alt' key and 'g' simultaneously
(ALT+G) to have C A N S present a window displaying
all of the valid groups. You may add, edit or delete
any item.
This feature is available at any point in the Names
section and also, at all points where groups may be
utilized (i.e., reports, utilities ).


The Surname and the Grouping may be edited at any time
(added, changed or removed). However, it should be
clear that you can save time by initially devising a
good idea of how you intend to use the rolodex and
following through with your planned use.

22


Hint - When entering names with titles, consider
this method:

Example, Dr. John B. Cansuer may be (should be ?)
entered as
John B. Cansuser, M.D.


The only required entry for Names is the Name - 1st line.
C A N S will accept nothing less.

Both lines for the name, street, suite, city and the 3 lines
for comments may be entered 'freeform'.

The entry for state is limited to 2 characters. C A N S
will NOT validate your entry - it will accept ZB as an
entry for state.

C A N S will accept numerals only for the zip code.
You may enter either 5 or 9 numerals; any other combination
will elicit a friendly reminder from C A N S ( BEEP ! ).

C A N S will appropriately format your entry.
Examples
12345
123456789
will be returned as
12345
12345-6789


C A N S will also accept numerals only for the telephone
numbers. You may enter either 7 or 10 numerals; any other
combination will also result in a friendly BEEP.

C A N S will correctly format your entries for
telephone numbers.
Examples
1234567
8001234567
will be returned as
123 - 4567
(800) 123 - 4567



23


To update an entry in the Names file, enter the name (or
portion of a name) consistent with the index you have
chosen. C A N S will retrieve the first entry which matches
your request.

You may 'toggle' the indexes between surname and first name.
The first name index is the default index.

C A N S then requests that you enter the line you wish to
change. Simply inform C A N S which line to go to and the
cursor is positioned there for you. When finished, press
ENTER and the entry is immediately updated for the changes
you made.


































24


UTILITIES


Many of the following options allow you to use
the group identifiers to block or batch process
names for that particular operation. C A N S
will prompt you for the first and last group
to be included. You may use function key 1 (F1)
at each prompt to indicate your choice or you may
use the F1 key in combination with a group
identifier.

Please note that C A N S will not allow you to
use a character for the last group which is lower
than the first group. For C A N S, the lowest
identifier is "A" (uppercase) and the highest
identifier is "z" (lowercase). Entering "a" in
response to the prompt for the first group and
then entering "M" in response to the prompt for
the last group will cause C A N S to issue its
friendly warning (BEEP).

If you have decided not to use a group identifier
for a name, using F1 in response to the prompt for
the FIRST group will cause any ungrouped names to
be included in your request.

Delete Appointments
This option allows you to delete blocks of
appointments as they become 'stale', such as
weekly, monthly; whatever frequency suits your
needs the most.

You may preserve certain types of appointments by
opting NOT to delete "T" or "D" type entries.

C A N S will NOT delete these unless you
explicitly instruct it to do so.

Delete Names
This option allows you to selectively delete
names by groups. This option is most useful, for
example, if you maintain sales leads for a certain
period of time. If you wish to maintain these
names and yet clean your names file up, you may
wish to archive these names before deletion.
25


Archive Names
This option allows you to copy names by group to a
separate archive file (Archive.MDB). This process
does NOT delete names as they are archived.

C A N S checks your entries as they are being
archived. If the Name-1st Line in the current working
rolodex matches a name in Archive.MDB EXACTLY,
C A N S simply copies over the existing entry in
the archive file with the current entry being
transferred from Names.MDB.

If you should make even the slightest change in
the Name(1st Line), C A N S assumes a NEW entry
and appends this to the end of the archive file.


Retrieve Archived Names
This option allows you to copy names by grouping
from your archive file back to your current
working copy of Names.MDB.

C A N S appends all retrieved names to the end
of the Names.MDB file even though a duplicate may
already reside in the Names.MDB file.

Export Names
This option creates an ASCII delimited file
on disk with the names as selected by you using
the group identifiers.

The file created is entitled "Names.PRN" and will
be located in the current working directory. The
first 'record' will contain the field names with
succeeding records containing all of the data
you have entered for each name. In addition, each
'record' will contain blank fields for those items
that you chose not to use for any given name.
Please see the appendix for a table listing the
data field names as they are reflected in
"Names.PRN".





26


Import Names
C A N S makes it easy for you to add groups of
names to its Names file. These names MUST exist in
an ASCII comma delimited file named Cansimp.ASC

which MUST be LOCATED in the current working
directory (i.e., 'c:\cans').

Please refer to the appendices for more detailed
instructions on importing names.


Mail Merge
This option creates an ASCII delimited file
on disk with the group of names as selected by you
using the group identifiers.

The file created is entitled "Names.MRG" and will
be located in the current working directory.
This file is much the same as "Names.PRN" as noted
above. In addition, C A N S includes in
"Names.MRG" the first name split into 2 segments :
the surname (as defined above) and that portion of
the name located to the left of the surname.
Please see the appendix for a table listing the
data field names as they are reflected in
"Names.MRG".

Included in your C A N S package is a file,
"Namesmrg.MST", which you may wish to use in
working with Wordperfect mail merge operations
(ver 5.1). Please see the appendices for more
discussion of the procedures in used in a
Wordperfect mail merge.

C A N S mail merge is NOT restricted to users who
prefer Wordperfect. Many popular wordprocessing
programs accept ASCII delimited files for mail merge
operations.








27

REPORTS
Appointments
Appointments may be retrieved either by date or by
searching for a keyword or phrase embedded in the text
of the Event or comments. Reports may be directed to
the monitor or to your printer.
Retrieval by date
C A N S will prompt you for the first and
last dates.
For printed reports, you are given the choice
of separate pages for each day or all
appointments on one page (or pages, if
necessary).
C A N S will include all appointments within
the specified range. You may, however, have
C A N S exclude certain types of
appointments (based on your PERM
designation).

Retrieval by keyword search
C A N S will ask you for the keyword or
phrase to search for. Your report will
be a chronological listing of all
appointments which contain the keyword or
phrase as supplied by you.

Note : C A N S is NOT case sensitive
in its search. It converts your request
to uppercase and treats text in your
appointments as uppercase, also.
It is not necessary for you to remember
how you may have entered a particular
word (with respect to capitalization).

Note : When entering the keyword or
phrase, be mindful that leading and
trailing spaces ARE significant.

For purposes of this example, assume "&"
means a space.
If you entered a number of birthdays in
your calendar using the word 'birthday'
in all of your entries and wish to
retrieve them with a search using
'birth', C A N S will find them if you
request 'birth'; C A N S will not
retrieve them if you request 'birth&'.
28

Rolodex Cards
C A N S will print rolodex cards of all of your entries
in your Names file. In addition, you may specify groups
to be included. The cards will be printed in
alphabetical order based on the surname you have
indicated.

C A N S will include all data available on the input
screens. This requires that you use a 3 x 5" card for
the print operation. Position your printer's print head
in the upper left most corner of the first card to be
printed.

Mailing Labels
C A N S will print mailing labels of all your entries
in your Names file. In addition, you may specify groups
to be included. The labels will be printed in 'zip code
order' and then alphabetized (within the 'zip code
order') based on the surname you have indicated.
C A N S will require a 3 1/2 x 15/16" mailing label.
C A N S will print the following data in the format as
presented -
Name 1st line
Name 2nd line
Street address
Suite address
City, state and zip code.

C A N S will ONLY print data which you maintain in the
Names file (no blank lines for non existent suite
address or the 2nd line of the name).
Position your printer's print head in the upper left
most corner of the first label to be printed.

Alphabetized Listing
C A N S will print an alphabetized listing (based on
the surname you have indicated) of your entries in
the Names file.

The report will include for each entry -
Name 1st line Home telephone number
Name 2nd line Work telephone number

Dump Names
This report is a 'hard copy dump' of ALL data for ALL
entries in your Names file. It can be used primarily
for editing and cleaning up your database.
29









APPENDICES





ALTERNATE CONFIGURATIONS

You may find that you wish to maintain personal data in a
separate 'operation' as opposed to inclusion in you 'business'
operation. There are at least 2 methods, one more desirable than
the other.

Separate directories.
Make another directory (i.e., \cans\personal).
Duplicate Cans.BAT using another name (i.e., pers.BAT)
and make the necessary PATH adjustments within the new
bat file. The following are possible versions of :

pers.bat
@echo off
cls
cd\cans
loadhigh proisamd /Ib:24 >nul
cd\cans\personal
\cans\main %1
\cans\proisamd /d >nul
cd\
cls

first.bat
@echo off
cls
cd\cans
loadhigh proisamd /Ib:24 >nul
cd\cans\pers
\cans\main v
\cans\proisamd /d >nul
cd\
cls

Please note that you MUST copy 'Manager.MDB' to your
alternate directory. All other C A N S programs and
files located in 'c:\cans' may be utilized from your
alternate directory as illustrated above.







31


Separate files.
This is the least desirable, cumbersome and confusing,
yet, functional alternative.

Rename all of the data files in the current working
directory (i.e., c:\cans) before starting C A N S.

Please remember to rename these same files upon
exiting C A N S.





































32


DATA ENTRY LIMITS

The above listing for Names.MRG indicate the 'field' names as
included in Namesmrg.MST to assist those who desire to utilize
C A N S in creating a 'secondary file' for mail merge using
Wordperfect.











34


IMPORT NAMES

C A N S facilitates the transfer of existing databases to C A N S
operations. This process is outlined and illustrated below.

1) Export the contents of your present database to an ASCII
comma-delimited file. Rename that file to 'Cansimp.ASC' and
ensure this file is located in the current working directory
(i.e., 'c:\cans').

2) Using a text editor or other means, identify the components of
Cansimp.ASC.

3) Select 'Import Names' from C A N S utilities menu and cross
reference the Cansimpt.ASC components to C A N S data layout.
C A N S does NOT require that you use all the information as
provided in the exported file. In addition, C A N S allows you
to 'construct' whole items from the components and use the
components more than once.

Consider the following example:
The exported data file you use contains field titles or names in
the first record and then the actual data in subsequent records.

The 1st record reads -
"First Name","Last Name","Street","City","State",
"Zip Code 1","Zip Code 2","Area Code","Telephone Number"

The 2nd record reads -
"John A.", "Cansuer, Jr","123 Main Street","Anytown",
"GA","12345","5678","123","4567890"

You would then :
Enter for - Name : 1st Line 1,2 ( Items 1 and 2 )
Enter for - Surname 2 ( Item 2; reused )
Enter for - Street Address 3
Enter for - City 4
Enter for - State 5
Enter for - Zip Code 6,7
Enter for - Work 8,9

Remember, C A N S must have, as a minimum, the Name : 1st line.




35


C A N S is able to accommodate an import file with up to 25
items per 'record'. C A N S will accept up to 17 pieces of
information on the input screen.

C A N S requires that you use only item numbers and commas to
separate items, if necessary. Any other entry will elicit
C A N S friendly warning ( BEEP !).


For those databases which do not maintain 'Last Name', you
will be required to edit the information in Names in order
to designate a surname.

C A N S will NOT differentiate your export file's 'header' record
from subsequent 'data' records. You may need to locate this
'item' within your Names.MDB and delete it in edit mode.

C A N S will strip any extraneous characters from formatted zip
codes and telephone numbers. If the resulting data does not
conform to C A N S specifications, it will NOT be imported.
The rest of the data relating to that 'name', however, will
be imported. C A N S will give you a 'tally' of all such
items not recognized and excluded from the data transfer.























36


WORDPERFECT MAIL MERGE

The following are procedures you may wish to follow in
constructing a secondary file to be used in a mail merge
utilizing Wordperfect (ver 5.1).

You may wish to consult your Wordperfect documentation
for a more detailed discussion of mail merges in general.

1) From C A N S utility menu, chose 'Mail Merge' and
generate your data file of names, etc.

2) Copy Namesmrg.MST to the directory you have chosen to
maintain your Wordperfect documents in. You will probably
wish to maintain a master copy of this file in 'c:\cans'
and use a working copy for Wordperfect.

3) From within Wordperfect, choose to RETRIEVE Namesmrg.MST.

4) Locate the cursor BELOW the hard page break.

5) Choose RETRIEVE file and open '\cans\names.MRG'.

6) Wordperfect will then ask you what file format you want

it to convert '\cans\names.MRG' from. Your response

should be 'ASCII delimited text'.

7) Wordperfect will then combine Names.MRG and
Namesmrg.MST into one document which is your secondary
file.

8) Choose to save this file (SAVE AS) under any name you

wish to associate with this document. This will

preserve Namesmrg.MST 'as is', ready for your next

mail merge operation.










37
Wincans.EXE

Wincans is a launch pad for C A N S from Windows 3.1. You must
have VBRUN300.DLL in order to use Wincans. This file is quite
large and, hence, not included with this package. However,
VBRUN300.DLL is a freely distributed file (no copyright
infringements for distribution ) and is available from many BBS.
If you have any problems locating VBRUN300.DLL, please contact me
- I will do what I can.

Wincans gives the Windows user all the command line function
capabilities which the DOS C A N S user enjoys.

You may place Wincans within a Windows group panel as you might
with all other Windows applications. Or, you might consider
having Windows 'load' ( not necessarily 'run' ) Wincans when you
start Windows. To do this,

1 ) Using Windows, choose 'run' from the File menu.
Enter 'sysedit' and choose O.K.

2 ) Windows then presents 4 files cascaded on your monitor.
Choose 'close' from the control button ( far upper left
corner ) for the first 3.

3 ) Within 'system.ini', very close to the top of the file,
locate 'load='.

4 ) APPEND to the end of this line :
A blank space (a blank space MUST separate
entries ),
The full path of C A N S location and then
'\wincans.exe'.

Example : Assuming you place C A N S in c:\cans and there
are no other entries on this line in 'system.ini',
it would read:
'load = c:\cans\wincans.exe'.

You may then 'switch to' C A N S from within ANY Windows
applications which provide the control button ( virtually
all do ).

When you are finished with a session of C A N S and return
to Wincans, again chose to 'switch to' your other
application(s) - choosing to 'close' from within Wincans
will terminate Wincans for that Windows session.

YOU MUST LOCATE Wincans IN THE DIRECTORY IN WHICH YOU HAVE
INSTALLED C A N S. YOU MUST HAVE Vbrun300.dll LOCATED IN
C:\Windows\system DIRECTORY.
