Re: Pet hates

I thought it was just me. I see well educated, articulate folk who will begin even their opening remarks with "So", it appears to be quite accepted now, like the way, maybe 35 or so years ago, everybody decided that henceforth data will be pronounced day-tah, and nobody informed me. :) The other one...

Moulding ID Please

We stocked this moulding a few years ago, and now a customer has returned seeking a match. I think the source was Ashworth & Thompson, however I don't see it on their current website so either I have overlooked it, it has been discontinued, or it is from another supplier. Moulding width: 20mm approx...

Re: exporting mailing list

Hi Justin,

From the main EstLite screen: Click Options>Data>Export
This will create the file EstNad.dbf in the Documents\Customers folder (The \Customers\ folder will be created if not already on your computer)

Open EstNad.dbf in Excel or in any free alternative.

Re: Discontinued moulding on ESTLITE

If you are intending to price a job with a discontinued moulding, EstLite assumes that you have that moulding in stock. As long as your discontinued moulding is in stock there is no need to be notified as you will be able to complete the job. If you are maintaining quantities in your list of stocked...

Re: EstLite Sales or Tutorial Videos

While there is a video or two for Pre-View, the visualisation application, I've always thought that they were unnecessary for EstLite, I suppose because I think it is so straightforward and uncomplicated in everyday use.

However I have recently begun to reconsider the idea.

The angles you are looking for;
26.6 DEGREES

Re: Migrate Estlite Failure

A couple of things to try.

Turn off any third party anti-virus Kaperski, McAfee, etc.

Install a printer driver.

If EstLite runs, then follow the data restore steps above.

No need to uninstall, Jay. In your new laptop: insert your backup memory stick into an available USB port, and run EstLite. Click Options>Data>Restore Locate, and double-click on the backup zip file on your memory stick. On completion EstLite will shut down, and the next time it is run it should be ...

Re: Any Virgin Broadband users out there?

It might be worth talking to Virgin. The current Virgin advertised price is £42 per month for the basic phone/broadband package, there is an introductory offer of £27 per month for the first year, which probably isn't an option. But you may be able to negotiate a better deal somewhere between the tw...

Re: Compressor Advice

For many years our ectremely noisy compressor sat on a sturdy shelf above our toilet. The WC was far enough away from the work and sales areas so that the sound was minimal when the door was closed. The on/off stitch was by the entrance so that the infernal machine could be disabled, leaving undistu...
