INSTRUCTIONS FOR MARCH 1991 DISK OF THE MONTH


This disk contains applications found in the March 1991 issue of WordPerfect,
the Magazine. The name of the article from which each application is derived
is mentioned at the end of the application instructions. NOTE: The following
macros (files with the extension .WPM) must be copied into the directory where
your other macro files are kept. WARNING! If you already have macros with the
same name, you must rename the macros found on this disk before they are
copied onto your hard drive or your original macros will be overwritten. Some
of these files are styles (files with the extension .STY). For 5.1, copy the
style files into the directory specified in Setup (Shift-F1), (6) Location of
Files, (5) Style Files. For 5.0, copy the styles files into your List Files
(F5) directory. All other document files should be copied to your List Files
(F5) directory.

Included on this disk are the following files that work for 5.0 and 5.1 where
specified:

LETTER.WP (5.1/5.0 keyboard merge) -- This is a sample keyboard merge letter.
It can easily be modified to contain the information you desire by
pressing Retrieve (Shift-F10), typing letter.wp and pressing (Enter).
Revise the text to suite your own needs, then Save (F10) your document.
Note: 5.1 users may want to replace each ^C with the equivalent
{INPUT}message~ code, although this isn't necessary.
To invoke the keyboard merge, from a clear screen press Merge/Sort (Ctrl-
F9), (1) Merge, type letter.wp and press (Enter) twice. Your cursor will
be in the proper place to type the name of the addressee. Press
End Field (F9) instead of (Enter) to move to each merge code.
