The commands shown above are available while using the editor. A forward slash (/) keystroke will bring up a menu with options for: 1.- copying up to 10 memo lines 2.- sorting the file into chronological order 3.- getting and setting the date 4.- searching the memo for words or phrases To use the menu, use the left and right arrow keys to highlight your selection and press the enter key (Carr.Rtrn).

Highlight the Receiving memo cell line and press / I(nsert). The memos will be inserted above the highlighted cell. Using this method, you can copy up to 10 memo lines at a time from one business record to another. Copy will not work if all 200 memo lines are filled. To use the search function press / F(indtxt) or F6, and enter up to 25 characters to be located. If the word/phrase is found it will be highlighted on the screen. To continue searching for the same item press / N(xtfind) or F7, the next match will be highlighted. Record Limits: Using this screen, you may set the testing limits or requirements each record must pass in order to be printed, exported, backed up or restored. A record must pass each limit set, with the exception of the trade codes limits. You can select either an and condition, or an or condition. By selecting AND the record must have pass both trade code limits, selecting the OR option the record must pass one or the other trade codes limits set. The O/a label to the right of the 2nd trade code is where this option is selected. When this option is left blank, the OR option is the default. You may choose to set one or more test limits. A Blank limit entry will be ignored when selecting records. To have every record used, leave all of the limits blank and press the F10 key. You may also use two "wild card" characters "*" and "?". For example if "Cin*" is entered as the city, any record with a city con- taining the first 3 character "Cin" will be selected. Entering "???a" as the city will return all records having "a" as the fourth character in the city field. The wild char- acters have no function within the date or annual sales fields. By using a combination of the various selection fields and the wild characters, you will be able to limit the records selected to exactly your needs. When you have finished entering the limits, press the F10 key to begin record selection. Calendar Creator Help Message The Calendar Creator prints A single months calendar for the month and year requested. The calendar will also includes 30 character strings extracted from the memos attached to each business record. The program requires that a wide carriage printer be used with the ability to print compressed characters. Epson compatable generally work well. The far left, single character, field of each memo line is used to designate what type of date the memo is. For example the following codes are predefined; M = Meeting P = Phone Call B = Birthday A = Anniversary H = Holiday You may use any character in the left memo field. ----------------------------------------------------- Excluding Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Holidays: At times you may wish to exclude personal data from a Business Calendar. To do so simple respond with a "N" to either question when asked. Holidays: A holiday can be attached to any business record, using the "H" character in the left memo field. We recommend that you create a business record and place a single years worth of holidays in the record for ease of editing and copying.
