"Jorge says . . ."

With Saturdays and Sundays so busy at farmer's markets, Jorge likes to spend the first day of the week inside.  But that doesn't mean he's not working.  By planning ahead Jorge is getting ready to sell even more.  "I print full page placards that feature some of my unusual vegetables.  They really help to make the produce look better.  It works."

He also likes to keep track of his yields with The Compleat Botanica so that he can prepare for next year.

Did you know?

Q:  Is there a way to change the column order after I've created my filter?

A:  Yes.  When a filter is first created, the column order of the specimen list is dependant upon the order in which the items were added to the filter.  To change this order later on, you can simply click and drag the column header of the specimen list. The ordering of columns will be retained and restored the next time you use the filter.  See the full story.

Frequently asked questions

  I've been using Windows Me for a long time and it seems to work just fine. Why should I upgrade?

A:  Earlier versions of The Compleat Botanica ran satisfactorily on Windows 98 and Windows Me. The latest version however uses the full power and capability of the newer operating systems. Only Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP are now supported.

Many of the computers that now use Windows 98 or Windows Me can be easily upgraded to Windows 2000 or Windows XP without any change in hardware. Upgrading in most cases is hassle-free. The result is a more stable system and one which can run the newer more powerful software like latest edition of The Compleat Botanica.

Tips . . .

  Managing your databases can be done from within The Compleat Botanica or using the Data Manager utility.

A:  After you've explored the sample database, you'll want to create your own database for recording and storing data about your plant collection. Managing your databases can be done from within The Compleat Botanica or by using the Data Manager utility. Both methods work identically for the four basic operations: creating, deleting, backing up, and restoring. The Data Manager utility has several advanced operations that may be useful for moving data between computers, fixing ODBC problems, and restoring databases damaged by a power failure.
