In PAF-4, use the file menu, and select 'open', then navigate to where the PAF 3 database is located and select it to poen.
The little window shows the folder you are in, the big window showe the files in that folder of the type that you can select in the small bottom window. The folder icon with the arrow bent up moves up in the directory. double clicking on a folder in the big window spens that foldre and puts it's name in the upper window. The icon shoing a folder with a starburst in the corner is used to create a new folder within the folder named in the upper window. The other two icons, List and details change the way the files and folders are displayed in the larger window. (I like the 'details' view, it gives the date modified and size)
I would imagine PAF 3 has a somewhat similar way to navigate and select files.
Good luck, Alfred
