03/22/93 Collector Mate 2.1


Welcome to Collector Mate! Collector Mate is an extremely
friendly and powerful database for collectors. Collector Mate
is perfect for those who collect Baseball Cards, Stamps, Coins,
Porcelain, or any other collectibles. The number of categories
you keep are limited only by the amount of space on your hard drive.
Pertinent online help is available from every screen via the F1 key.
Ease of use, attractive screens, and useful reports make this the
Serious Collectors dream!

Future enhancements may include trading of information by
modem and custom report writing capabilities. And if good
suggestions are received who knows what else??

Print this ascii file for a brief but helpful users guide.

Please be advised that CollectorMate requires your system to be
configured with at least (30) thirty files set in the CONFIG.SYS
file of your root directory. If this is not the case, we
recommend using your DOS editor or some other editor to modify the
CONFIG.SYS file to include the following line:

FILES = 30

There are three basic screen types in Collector Mate. They
are Menus, Tables, and Forms.A description of each follows ...

Menus

'Point and Shoot' technology is used throughout Collector Mate.
All menu selections are activated by hilighting the desired choice
with the cursor keys or by pressing the first letter of the desired
field. Once the proper choice is selected press Enter. By pressing
the Esc (Escape) key from any menu, you may back up to the previous
menu, or if on the main menu, exit to DOS.


Tables

Tables are used to view records in a file. To search a record
out from a table use the Cursor keys, PgUp, PgDn, Home, and End keys.
You will find the function of each key to be straight forward. Another
way to locate a record is by using the search field located at the
top left of each table. If the table is in item name order, for
example, as you enter the item name you will notice the hilighter
bar moving closer and closer to the match. For instance, if you are
searching for Johnny Bench, as soon as the 'J' is entered, the
hilighter bar will have moved to the top of the J 's in the table.

Once the proper record is hilighted press Del to delete it or
Enter to modify the record. At any place in the table you may press
Insert to add a new record. Many of the tables have the Auto Insert
option which prevents you from having to press the Insert key after
each addition. This may be helpful if you are adding many items
in a row from a list.To go into auto insert press Ctrl+I. If
you own duplicates you may copy an existing item by hilighting the
item to be copied and pressing Ctrl+C. The item will be brought up
for modification and then added after you complete any changes if any.


Forms

Forms are screens in which data regarding an Item is filled out.
The Enter key will advance you through the fields, while the escape
key will back you to the previous field. The Up and Down cursor keys
act as the Escape and Enter keys respectively. When on a field where
the choices are provided in a menu fashion, the Left and Right cursor
keys will move you to the selection of your choice at which point
pressing Enter will accept the hilighted choice. The menu selection
may also be hilighted by pressing the first letter of the choice you
want.Try the Condition field from the item update screen for an
example.

Terms and Uses

The following list of terms and techniques will help you get
going fast with Collector Mate.

CATEGORY:
A category is an area defined by the user for storage of
records. An example would be Cincinnati Reds - 1990. Within
a category there are fields which may be configured such as whether
to use a retirement date as well as an introduction date; Whether to
use a high and low market value; Whether to include a field for
a number. Also there is a place for a generic field if you wish.
This could be something like 'Status' for baseball cards. Entries
such as 'Rookie', 'Damaged', 'Error', or 'Rare' could be entered
for each card under status. Reports could then be generated
filtering out a specific match on the field. All 'Rookie' cards from
the category Cincinnati Reds - 1990 could be reported by using the
generic match report.


ITEM:
An Item is a single element from a given category such as
a baseball card from Cincinnati Reds - 1990, or a stamp from a
category called WWII stamps - American, for example.


CATEGORY SELECTION:
This is an option off the main menu which will allow you
to change to a different category. Simply press Enter once you
have hilighted the menu option 'Category Selection' and all the
possible choices will show up. Now hilight the proper choice in
the table and press Enter. You have now changed to a different
category.

To add new categories go to the menu selection 'Category
Update' and press Enter. From here use the techniques defined above
under 'Tables.'

Remember the F1 key will help you through the system as you learn!
I hope you find Collector Mate easy to use, easy to remember, and
very useful. If you would like to see any additions and/or
enhancements, please let me know, your thoughts would be greatly
appreciated!

Thanks for using Collector Mate, and Happy Hunting!
