Decide WHERE you
want to save a record book file and WHAT you want
to name it BEFORE you download a file. Make a note
If you decide to
save to your Desk Top, make sure no one will accidentally
Another Option: Make a folder in My
Documents and name the folder "4H Record Books."
Save your record book files to this folder.
Give each Record
Book file a name. If there are two or more 4-H'ers using
your computer to keep record books, make sure you include
name or initials in the file names.
Examples (2 4-H members in family)
4H Record Books
(for C0934 Record Book Level 2 )
(for C0935 4-H Permanent Record Book)
(for C0856 Individual Horse Record)
(for C0947 4-H Project Record - use for any
project after main project)
(for C0947 4-H Project Record)
(for C0932 Record Book Level 1)
(for C0933 4-H Permanent Record Book - Lvl 1)
a Back-up Copy! After
you have made entries in your record book files (record
book, permanent record, add sheets, etc), remember to SAVE.
Then do a "save as" and save a copy to
another location on your computer or (even
a CD, or thumb drive!
Some of the record
book files are large. Make sure you have enough room to store
your copies. If you have more than 1 4-H member in
the family, consider a separate back-up CD or thumb drive for each
Another "Back-Up" idea -
Peridically, print out pages and keep in a safe place.
