Once the format/s are set in File.fmt , and data entry is in
process then there should be none . But it takes a 1st time
user some time to get to speed.
You could be annoyed by these situations
At present you can only see the formats in FILE.FMT when you are
editing / creating the formats . It is not a menu item in the
menus . You can exit to DOS to edit whenever you want though .
You must change to the directory where the data file is being
created - FILE.FMT should also be in the same directory.
Only drive names are accepted at prompts. Not directory paths.
Supposing FILE.FMT is not in the same directory in which the
data file is being created then it is possible that you could
face a situation where you MAY have to press Control-C to exit
the program .
You can leave out field names altogether. But at least a CRLF must
be entered even if field names are left blank. It does get difficult
to fill in field names for fields of 1 col. length.
You may forgive us for the above . If you take into account
that for a typical data entry job the operator is on the main screen
for maybe 99% of the time .

- Use simple rules of conscience and common sense. Pay only if you
profit from this. We dont expect to be paid for occupying disk space. We don't expect anything from individuals doing data entry at home. However if you want to pay then $15 or ( Rs. 400/-) is enough to remove the "Unregistered Software" and put your name there. Support is provided only through e-mail. No payment is fine too since we can do little about it. And that is what makes the Internet tick.
If you are a small firm $100 (or Rs 4000/-)will remove the
"unregistered" bit and put your name in. We can give as much support
as is possible through e-mail. We will make any formats you find difficult in the early stage and e-mail them to . We can help On-line through the MSN messenger chat facility.
- If you are a larger concern then we expect $500(or Rs20,000) and
we will extend you far better and prompt support. We will also
add the ability to put the SP directory on whichever drive you
want . Right now there is no choice , it has to be c:\sp on C
drive which may not be acceptable on a LAN based system . (The data file directory can be anywhere). A similar
amount is expected for each site where the software is used .
Payment in installments is acceptable - you decide the installment.
Cheques or drafts must be made in the name of "THE COMPUTER
CENTRE" drawn on an Indian Bank . Even cash in envelopes is safe at

SCANNER based data capture
If you are doing data entry from printed documents and computer
output then these may help .
