Click on the Search Button.
The tool searches well with just the
"LAST" name entry but not just the
"FIRST" name. The program will search PatScan.mdb
and give you the first entry in the
database which matches the letters
you have entered. If
you have several clients with the same
letters use the forward arrow button to
find the record you want. In
the example we typed "do" for

yielded Doe, John and his
"IDENTIFIER", DO1001. In the

the type of report you want. If you

scan, if you pick two scans and you
try to do a "Single Scan View" Report, you
will get an error message. For the

up to 10 Scans. They do not have
to be in chronological order as the
"Full Body Scan Comparison" Report will sort them by date. The
"Body Part Changes"
Report requires 2
Scans to be chosen. To remove
a scan from the "Scans for Reports:"
select the scan and Click the
"Remove Scan" button.
After selecting the report desired

on the Print icon to print and then
on the Close Print Preview option to return
to the Data Entry and Search Form to

If you leave the "LAST"
and "FIRST" boxes empty there is an
alternate way to find a client or
just scroll through the PatScan.mdb
database. On first opening the
Data Entry and Search Form, the first record in
your database is indicated in the
"LAST NAME" box (usually 10"
thick scan). The Alternate
Search Method is is to simply use
these arrow keys. The first arrow
take you to the first record in the
database (usually 10" thick scan), the forward and back arrow buttons allow
you to advance through the database
alphabetically by Last Name one at a
time. As you
display each client, their scans are
displayed in the "Scans for Reports:" box.
You can create reports for an
individual client as their scans are listed.
The last arrow
takes you to the last record in the
Single Scan View Report
