PREREQUISITES

Install QC-CALC 3.0.


INTRODUCTION

When you install QC-CALC 3.0, a small program is installed just above QC-CALC in the Start menu called Convert 3.0.

By default, this program can be found by clicking Start -> Programs -> Prolink -> Convert 3.0.

STEPS

  1. Open Convert 3.0.
  2. Make sure Convert to Version 3.0 is selected and click OK.
  3. Choose either Directories or Single or Multiple files at the top.
    Choosing Directories will convert all files in the chosen directory. Otherwise you can choose a list of files to convert. Checking Include Subdirectories will recursively search all subdirectories under the parent and convert all files found to version 3.0.
  4. Choose a source path by either clicking the elipses ("...") button to the right of the Source field or by typing a path in the text field.
  5. Choose a destination path by either clicking the elipses ("...") button to the right of the Destination field or by typing a path in the text field.

NOTE: It is NOT recommended that you check Overwrite Converted File as this will cause the original data files to be overwritten. By keeping this box unchecked, Convert 3.0 will create copies of the files in Version 3.0 format.

  1. Click OK when ready to continue.
  1. On the Modify Database Structure screen, leave all settings as is and click OK.

For more information, please consult Appendix B of the QC-CALC 3.0 User Manual.
