    Programming Event Macro's

    To program Event Macros, select the Macro Group to display the Event Macro you want to program. The sixteen commands for the Macro selected will be displayed on a sliding panel. Use the checkbox to either enable or disable each macro. To program the cells, place your mouse pointer over the desired cell and left click to highlight the cell. Enter with your keyboard the four (4) digit commands. Repeat for all the cells you want to program.

    Along the left side of the panel, the macro number not only serves to identify the macro number, but also has two additional functions as well. If you click on the number with your mouse with one click, the heading along the top will display the macro identification. Double clicking will call up a macro review box to enable you to review your macro programming for correctness.

    Programming User Macro's

    To program User Macros, select the Macro Group to display the User Macro you want to program. The sixteen commands for the Macro selected will be displayed on a sliding panel. Use the checkbox to either enable or disable each macro. Next enter a code that is a unique number for your macro. To program the cells, place your mouse pointer over the desired cell and left click to highlight the cell. Enter with your keyboard the four (4) digit commands. Repeat for all the cells you want to program.

    At the end of the sliding panel is a command button labeled "Message". By clicking this button you can enter an explanation text line for the macro you are programming. This will be helpful to identify each macro string during a macro review or a hard-copy print.

    Along the left side of the panel, the macro number not only serves to identify the macro number, but also has two additional functions as well. If you click on the number with your mouse with one click, the heading along the top will display the macro identification. Double clicking will call up a macro review box to enable you to review your macro programming for correctness.

    Scheduler Programming

    To program a scheduler event time, begin by selecting the "Group" range to display the scheduler number you will be editing. Please note the scheduler number relates to the "Event" macro number. For example, if you program scheduler number 30 to "fire" at the time you specify, then what you programmed in Event macro 30 will execute at the scheduled time.

    The check box will enable or disable a scheduler position. This is a handy way to disable a schuduler position without needing to erase all of the parameters. If later you want the scheduled event to become active again, you will not need to re-program the parameters. Just re-check the enable check box.

    To program the time, click on the time box and enter four (4) digits in 24 hour time. Note: This field needs to be four (4) digits. Therefore an entry for 7:30AM would be entered as "0730" were as 7:30PM would be entered as "1930".

    You can program a time entry for all hours by entering ** in the hour field. For example, to enter an event to fire every hour at 20 minutes pass the hour would be entered as **20.

    Program the weekday parameter by clicking on the drop-down box and selecting the desired weekday. You can also skip the weekday or select the event for weekdays or weekends only.

    The month and month day is program in a similar way. Click on the drop down box and select the parameter or a skip condition
