Process Incoming Files
The "Process Incoming Files" function allows you to process scanned
files and associate them with specific equipment units or service
orders. These can also be files downloaded from digital cameras, emailed
to you or other sources.
You must turn this option on in the Global Options form on the Misc tab
and specify the "Incoming files path" folder and the "Files sub
directory".folder. The "Files sub directory".folder is contained within
the same folder as the data MDB so it is easier to backup both the
database and the files.
If multiple users are using the system you also select the Scan Folder
on the User Details form.
When you scan the files or download them from a camera they must be
placed in the "Incoming files path" folder. This folder can be anywhere
on your hard drive or on a network folder.
Use the Process Incoming Files form to associate the files with specific
equipment units or services. The files are then moved from the "Incoming
files path" folder into the "Files sub directory".folder.
