Just wanted to say 'I'm glad I found you!' Pulled out my TI and have started to play with it again. I forgot how much fun it was. Wish there were more people out there still using it!

Multiplan Part 10 by Audrey Bucher

This month's column will be a short one with a few hints and tips.

If you have a MP data disk with more than eighteen files on it, you may have wondered how to catalog the disk as the screen will only show the first eighteen files when you use the arrow for a directory. From the New Jersey UG North comes the following instructions. When the eighteen files are displayed on the screen, place the cell pointer on the last filename and press REDO (Fctn 8). The screen will redraw and display TRANSFER LOAD filename: where filename is the last filename of the previous directory displayed. The message line will now display "Enter a filename (arrow for directory)".

Press Function down arrow to display additional filenames beginning with the last filename on the previous display. Attempting to access (T)ransfer, (L)oad without any files on the disk or without a disk in the drive will cause the computer to lock up. To cancel the show directory command, press CTRL+ or CTRL C. Multiplan files are not necessary to test this function of the show directory command. Use any disk containing at least twenty or more files.

Another tip comes from Roanoke Valley. Once you start scrolling you can release the Function or Control key and just keep the arrow depressed. (The function and arrow keys scroll one cell at a time and the Control and arrow keys cause the cell pointer to scroll four cells at a time.) Scrolling did not work on the original MP disk. It is necessary to have the updates for this.

Next month we'll talk about Indexing. I have just learned to use this and have found it useful in keeping track of the golf scores that I wrote about last month. We'll look at some of the other uses for this.

If anyone has any other uses for MP, please let us know. Always looking for new ideas.
