Topic: Basic Recorder Handbook / instructions

Hello,
I have applied and got an interview for a job which entails using Recorder.
I currently use MapMate and we used to have Recorder loaded at work - I tried to open it on one of the computers but the licence had been removed I think.   
I can't seem to find a manual either!  ( person who used it has retired)   
I have looked on the WWW to see if there is a down loadable one for me to browse to get the feel of how it works.
I have limmited experience of it from a few years ago.
I extracted basic data for sites using Rucksacks (??) I assume this was some form of SQL thingy. 
Can some one point me in the right direction or give me the basics of how it works please!

Many Many thanks!!

Kate

PS Interview on Tuesday!

Hi Kate,

Try this. You should be able to scan it quite easily to get a feel for it all.

Many thanks for the manual.

I just missed out on the job to someone with a little more experience!

May do some voluntary work so the Recorder knowledge will be usefull

Thanks

Re: Basic Recorder Handbook / instructions

I wonder who got the job? There can't be that many people out there with Recorder experience that we don't know... ??

Re: Basic Recorder Handbook / instructions

Will let you know when I find out!

Anyway, there were many other aspects to the job as well as using recorder.

Thanks
