What happens:


Define database layout

A work (prototype) screen appears


Check if database files need rebuilding

A system check of the FIEL is done to determine if a full rebuild of the file is required at regeneration. Useful because merely changing or repositioning a label in the design will not result in a complete rebuild of the file. This means that the regeneration will take a shorter amount of time.


Full regeneration

A Regeneration Prompt screen appears


Define Reports Menu

A Reports Menu Options Maintenance screen appears


Work with regeneration backup files
