Recalling <<*Ask* . . . record

   When you have assemble a document which contains an <<*Ask* . . . >> table, the Wizards screen will display. If there are <<*Ask* . . .  records that you have previously saved (see previous page) a button will appear in the extreme upper right corner labeled "Read Data". If you wish to recall a record instead of  manually making each selection, click that button.

   Pathagoras automatically will select the radio buttons and checkboxes and fill in the 'repeat' values in accord with the saved data. (The example given, with only 3 choices on screen, hardly exemplifies the value of this features. But when there are multiple screens and dozens of choices, this can be a tremendous time saver.)

   Make any changes as may be appropriate. Pathagoras will ask you if you want to update the existing record or create a new record. This second (create new record) feature allows you to record a 'standard' or 'universal' set of answers perhaps named 'Standard' --or anything you wish-- so that Pathagoras will automatically select the 'typical' values for you. You then can modify the selections as appropriate and save the new, more personalized, record for the specific client or customer. (This feature is similar to the 'mask' function of Instant Database records.)
