THE SCHEDULER

Employee schedule program

Scheduler is a program designed to allow entry of employee's
work schedules, with easy modification and printing of the
schedules. The program will make a 1 week schedule, for up
to 60 employees. The program will also display graphs of the
schedule for each day.

Scheduler consists of six files that must be on the same
disk or in the same directory; SCHEDULE.EXE, WEEK.FRM,
GRAPH1.SCR, GRAPH2.SCR, HELP.SCR, and SCHEDULE.DOC

Two other types of files will appear on the disk when using
Scheduler; filename.SCH and filename.BAK. The .SCH is the
latest version of a schedule. When you "Build a new schedule"
the program will produce a .SCH file. When you "Load an old
schedule" the program will save the .SCH file as a .BAK file,
and save the new changes as a .SCH file. If you make a mistake
when modifying a file that has a matching .BAK file it is easy
to recover from the mistake by exiting the program and erasing
the messed up .SCH file and using the DOS command
"RENAME filename.BAK filename.SCH" and pressing the Enter key.
The filename in the line would be the name of your file, and
you would not type in the quote marks.



This small manual will take you through the steps of making a
new schedule, altering it and printing the finished schedule.




At the DOS prompt, type SCHEDULE and press enter.

A>SCHEDULE

You will be asked for the path to the schedule files. That
simply means to type in the drive and directory names that
have the data files. If you have a dual drive disk, you may
want to keep the Schedule program files on a disk in drive A,
and the schedules on a disk in drive B. If so, you would
enter B:\ , which tells the program to look in the main directory
of drive B. If you have a hard disk drive named C, and have
made a subdirectory for the schedule program and schedules and
called it SCHEDULE, you would enter C:\SCHEDULE\ .

Path Information
Which drive and subdirectory are your schedules in?
Enter as A:\ or B:\SUBDIRECTORY\ > <



You will then see the menu;
