Contents Science Bundle - Elementary Opening a Saved Database
Grade: K-12
Required products: Tool Factory Database V2
Instructions
When Tool Factory Database first boots, a main menu appears.

OPENING A DATABASE
1) Click “Change a Database” from the main menu.
2) Select a database from the list on the left, or click the "Open" icon (it looks like a folder and is easy to overlook) and browse for the database.
3) Click OPEN.

If the database doesn’t appear in the list, it may have been recently moved, or saved to a location other than the program’s default folder. In step 2, instead of clicking the name from the list, click the OPEN folder icon and browse the computer’s drive to locate the “filename.bld” database file. Hi-light it and click OPEN.
