Using PBC Help

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Press the F1 key to display the PBC help details.

 

The PBC help is context sensitive. This means after pressing the F1 key the help file will be directed to the subject displayed in the help file.

 

The PBC.Chm file located in the p:\Oinsight folder is the default help file.

Any help specific to your industry are located in separate .CHM files.

For example:

ELECTRICAL.chm

FASHION.chm

DEALER.chm

SURVEY.chm

CMG.chm

FLOORING.chm

CLUB.chm

COC.chm

etc.

 

 

Producing the help details is a continuing process and if any user finds any errors please contact Chris Meyer chris@pbcit.com.au  to update the master help. You will be rewarded with the latest version of PBC.chm or your industry files. Any assistance in producing this help will be much appreciated as this is a mammoth task.

Unfortunately the maintenance of all help files can only be performed by staff at Parramatta Business Consultants as this requires special help generating software.

 

The structure of the help file is the same as the PBC menu system for your convenience.
