Well ~ Perhaps I'm not expressing myself well, or, indeed, nobody knows how to find the file used to store the event reminders. I've reviewed six or eight 'event reminders' and Karen's does exactly what I want a reminder to do. I've used this utility for years. I have never been able to figure out how to transfer the installed listings to another computer. I'll bet there's a file somewhere that I could implant in another PC, along with the Countdown Timer to avoid a lot of keyboard work. (( And to store the data safe 'n sound on, for instance, Google Drive. )) I'll give this another week or so then resign myself to ~~~~~. 1Floyd1I still use Karen's Countdown Timer. How do I export the timer data files to another computer?
Greetings Captain Ron. Well first of all thanks for your interest and concern. Actually I've used this version for a long time. And I've attempted the Import/Export function extensively. There are several surprises while trying to, for instance, Export the database. It comes up with a default .txt extension. There is no suggested filename. (So I give it a simple, recognizable name.) And into one of my temp. folders where I might be able to access it later to copy, paste to a, for instance, thumb stick or wherever. The file is copied to the directory OK and is, indeed, a .txt. file. It is nicely formatted in tabular form; everything is zeros and 'False'. There are 22 events in my 'Reminder'. There are 22 rows in the text file.Not sure if this will help; but looks like this version has the means of Exporting your events?
Thanks again Ron. 'Wonder what you fly? Fond memories of your Green Mountain area.Sorry to hear that I also have an old program that I have been using for umpteen years, Lotus Organizer 2.1. I figured out how to get into the data file and save it to my backup and a Flash drive. Over the years I have had to re-install from Floppy drives and then just a matter of a copy and paste back into the Data file and all is well.
Yes Ron I think I've tried everything. This is one of those not-critical problems that can be addressed when there's nothing else to worry about. But I hate to let a solvable problem get the best of me. OK on the Beechcraft. Thanks again Ron.The aircraft you see next to my name was shot from a friend on my last trip coming in for a landing. The aircraft is a Beechcraft King Air B200. I am retired/disabled.
Now, I'm sure you have tried this; but instead of naming the .txt file, just export it to your file, then copy it do a flash drive or whatever and try Importing it to your other computer. I bet you tried this?
