Open Set of Books

Parent Previous Next

Introduction

This option is used to open a Set of Books. The Set of Books must already exist in any available directory on your computer system or network. The list of Books that appear in the List box is a composite list of valid TurboCASH4 Sets of Books. Each Set of Books must be kept in a separate directory.

The composite list consists of firstly, all valid Sets of Books under the TurboCASH4 directory (or the directory where TurboCASH4 is installed) and secondly, additional Sets of Books that have been added to the list. (These would be Sets of Books that are in other directories, for example on another part of the hard disk or somewhere on a mapped drive on the network).
