At current time I have no printer at home. In order to share data with family in hard copy form, I must download to diskette and print at the local college library. Since this helps me get out of the house more often.....with a Mission, I prefer to do things this way as long as that mission is accomplished on the first attempt. Recently I have run into problems exporting to disk when the program asks for the file name. It gives me a partial file name: "*ged" which I then add to either before this designation or after it to no avail. If I am not supposed to use this "*ged", then why is it there? By deleting the *ged and entering a file name I have recieved successful results in downloading, but when I arrive at the library to print (after downloading PAF4, Multi to the library's desktop) I cannot get the program to recognize the file name on the diskette. What am I doing wrong? Also, once I overcome the problem of the program "reading" the diskette file name, how do I load it into the PAF program? Do I use the "Import" function?
