-------------

Xtimelog is a Windows 3.X application. You will need to be running
Windows 3.0 or 3.1 to use Xtimelog.

Xtimelog provides a way to create and maintain a database of your time
usage on a number of projects. A Xtimelog database consists of a set
of projects that you create and name. Each project will collect a set of
work sessions as you use Xtimelog. A work session is created in a
project when you "Punch In" on that project. The session is completed
when you punch out. The database is kept on disk so no data is lost
if you turn off the computer, exit Xtimelog or even exit Windows. The
worst that can happen is that you remain "Punched In" until you run
Xtimelog again and "Punch Out".

Xtimelog provides several report formats that can either be sent to
the printer or to a .txt file. You can inport the .txt file into your
favorite word processor to create invoices, monthly reports etc.

Xtimelog can also be a Windows Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) server.
This allows you to write spreadsheets that can extract the total
hours worked on each project into a cell on the spreadsheet. (at this
time Exatech has only verified that DDE works for Microsoft Excel. We
would be interested to know if it works for other Windows
spreadsheet programs).

Xtimelog also allows you to edit your project histories in cases such
as where you forget to "Punch Out".

Xtimelog Installation
--------------------

The complete Xtimelog system consists this readme file, XTIMELOG.EXE
and XTIMELOG.HLP. In addition, you will find COMMDLG.DLL and DDEML.DLL
on this diskette. These last two files are Microsoft dynamic link
libraries that are distributed with MS Windows 3.1. If you are
running MS Windows 3.1, you should delete the two DLL's provided here
and save the disk space. But if you are still running Windows 3.0 you
must keep them in order to run Xtimelog.

Installation consists of copying these files to a directory
on your hard disk. Then you have several options to run Xtimelog.

1. You can run Xtimelog from the Windows File Manager by selecting
XTIMELOG.EXE and using the File Manager's "File" menu "Run" menu.

2. Or you can double click XTIMELOG.EXE directly in the File Manager
Window.

3. A better way to run Xtimelog is to install it in your Startup
Program Group. You can do this by dragging XTIMELOG.EXE from the
File Manager and dropping it into your Startup Group in the
Program Manager. Then Xtimelog will start up every time you start
Windows.

4. Finally you can install Xtimelog the hard way by choosing the StartUp
Program Group Icon in the Program Manager window. Then
choose the "New..." item in the Program Manager's File menu. Then
a dialog box will appear with two selection buttons. Make sure
the one that is labeled "Program Item" is selected. Then press
the OK button.

Another dialog box will then appear prompting you for the Program
Item Properties. Assuming you placed XTIMELOG.EXE and the other
files in the directory, C:\Xtimelog the values you enter for
these properties should be:

Property Name Property value you enter

Description Xtimelog
Command Line c:\XTIMELOG\XTIMELOG.exe
Working Directory c:\XTIMELOG

When you have entered these property values, press OK. The
Xtimelog Icon will then appear in the Startup Program Group. You
can then run Xtimelog by double clicking this icon.

Because Xtimelog is in your Startup Group, Xtimelog will now be started
automatically whenever you start Windows.

Documentation
-------------

Xtimelog is not a complex application such as a word processor or a
spreadsheet. We believe that a printed manual would be redundant.

Pressing the F1 function key or choosing the first item on the Help
menu will take you into the Xtimelog help system. You could make a
printed manual by using Help to print out the help topics. For instance,
there is a help topic for each menu item. We believe that everything one
needs to know about Xtimelog is in the help topics.

We suggest starting with the Overview and Database topics and then
proceeding to read the descriptions of the Main Window Buttons and Controls
followed by the Pulldown Menu Items. Leave the Miscellaneous topics until
later. Then begin to experiment with Xtimelog.

If we are wrong and this documentation is not adequate, please let
Exatech know so that future versions might come with a better manual.
