This is when I came up with a very simple data base, which should be on this disc saved a 'DBase'. The program allows you to create a file containing names, addresses, telephone numbers and post codes of up to 3150 people! Once you have created a file the program lets you update it with more details. Also the program lets you display a whole file, display details on a certain person, and print a file. Getting It To Work =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= The program is made for model B and master, but Im afraid it will not work on model A because of the use of the command OPENUP. If you really want the program to work on model A you should replace the command OPENUP to OPENIN. It should then work on model A (hopefully!). The Idiots Guide =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Creating A New File =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= To create a new file simply enter '1' from the menu. You will then be asked for a file name. Enter a file name and then press return. Then the disc drive will whirl, and the screen will clear. You then can start entering the persons name, address, telephone number and then postcode. Once you have done this you will be asked for another persons name, address etc. When you have finished entering all your details press Escape. Note that you can only press Escape when you are at the Name prompt. When you press Escape the program will close and you will be returned to the main menu. Updating a file =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= To update a file enter '2' from the main menu and then enter a file to update. Updating a file is very easy and to return to the menu after updating press Escape. Displaying A file =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= To display a file choose '3' from the menu and then enter a file name. You will then be asked if you want to display the whole file. If you enter 'Y' or 'y', for yes the whole file will be displayed. Use Shift to scroll and press Escape to return to the menu. If you choose not to display the whole file you will be asked for a persons name. After you have entered a name the program will search through the file until it finds it, and then the persons details will be displayed. Im afraid you can only search on a persons name. Printing a file =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Once you have entered '4' from the menu you will then be asked for a file to print. Once you have entered a file the printer will be switched on and the whole file will be printed. Anything Else! =-=-=-=-=-=-=- The last option at the menu is entering a star command, such as *.0, *HELP, *TAPE, *BASIC. ********************************************************************** * * * This program is not perfect, but Im sure someone will find it very * * useful. * * * ********************************************************************** BBBBB BB BB BB BB yy yy eeee BBBBB yy yy ee ee BB BB yy yy eeeeee BB BB yyyyy ee BBBBB yy eeee yyyy \\\ /// !
