OOFILE User's Manual

You should start here to learn how to use the OOFILE suite (after Installing the software).

As you can see, there are a variety of sub-sections stemming from this page. Each of the pages listed below represent a cluster of information that generally belongs together. Within each cluster the pages are in order but most of the clusters themselves tend to be seperate from one another. Below is a contents list with a basic desription of the information they are likely to contain.

You may either read these clusters consecutively or jump to whatever page you choose. The only advice you should need is that the first two clusters contain the basic information about how to define your database and tables, so it may be useful to know this at the start of your journey :)
