GENERAL DISCUSSION

These are the menu commands under the File Menu.


File Menu Commands
Menu Description
Enter Project Information Opens a small dialog box that allows you to enter the project's basic information, which is then copied to the appropriate locations in all the documents and also used as the default file name when you save the file.

Among the information you will need to enter is a Project Name, which will determine the name of the file when it is saved.

Some examples of formats for Project Names are:
  • Smith Addition
  • Jones Residence
  • Seaside Restaurant
  • Park Square Office Building
  • 4233 Carson Street Renovations
  • Standard Bathroom Remodel

When you enter a Project Name, the program will ask you if you want to save the file as the name of the project.

We strongly suggest you accept the prompt, which will change the file name to the name of your project AND also save the file at that time.

You can change the Project Name at any time.

You may also override the Project Name as the File Name during the File-Save routine.

Print Dialog Box This will open the standard Excel Print dialog box, which will give you complete control of the printing of your documents.

Although each document menu includes commands to preview and print that document, there are certainly situations where you might need to perform a print function outside of the standard print routines we have programmed into SpeedContracts.  Some special print situations where you would want to use this dialog box are:
  1. You need to print a document on a printer other than you default printer.
  2. You only want to print one or several pages of a document, and not the entire document.

Save to Floppy Drive This command will save the file to your floppy disc drive A, using the Project Name as the File Name.

SpeedContracts will ask you to confirm that this is where you want to save the file before it actually performs the save function, at which point you can cancel the operation and change the file path or the File Name.

Save to Hard Drive This command will save the file to the drive and folder set under the File Path set in the Settings dialog box, using the Project Name as the File Name.

SpeedContracts will ask you to confirm that this is where you want to save the file before it actually performs the save function, at which point you can cancel the operation and change the file path or the File Name.

File-Save Dialog Box This command will open the standard Excel File-Save dialog box, which will give you full control of where and under what name you save the SpeedContracts File.

Although SpeedContracts provides you with two automatic file-save functions, there are certainly situations where you would need to perform a save function that is different that our standard routines.

Some situations where you might want to use the File Save dialog box are:
  1. You want to save the file in a different location that the path set in the Settings dialog box, but you want to keep the default file path as is.
  2. You want to save the file as a different name than the Project Name, but you want SpeedContracts to keep the Project Name as it is.

Close SpeedContracts This will close the SpeedContracts file and return you to Excel.
