I have the old(er) 3.0Beta1 version of PWSafe and am trying to update.
I am reading the forums and am trying to do the exports, change columns etc...
most of which I THINK I understand, but here's my problem.
ANY file that I am "exporting" shows as a "locked" file that I can ONLY view
while I'm selecting it within the PW program!
I have my folder settings to show all hidden files etc, but I cannot view
these files to open them in word, or erasure for that matter!
HOW do I access my exported files?? PLS help, I'm feeling REALLY stupid at
this point... <sigh>
PS, in case it's pertinent: Win7 - 64bit
Whew! 3.0Beta1 is, er, chronologically challenged...
Here's what I suggest:
We'll take it offline from there...
Thanks Rony, but here's what I'm encountering. I created a new database using
my old 3.0Beta1, but when I try to save it, I get the message
The original database "", is in pre-3.0 format. The data will now be written
in the new format, which is unusable by old versions of PWS. To save the data
in the old format, use the "File->Export To->Old(1.x or 2) format" command.
Press OK to continue saving, or Cancel to stop.
Now if I continue, is it going to defeat whatever purpose you need the "beta
database" to be saved in the first place? I'm not sure why it's trying to save
it in a different version, I'm using my original 3.0Beta1 version program.
Also, the "txt" file that I exported earlier, do you know WHY I can't "view"
or "select" it from any program outside of PWS? I downloaded that Erasure
program, but can't access it to erase it!
My work around there was export to a flash drive, but I'm afraid I'm just not
sure how to go about following the instructions to put it in columns, then
open the 3.1 export file and open in a table... I'm not a big "office" user. I
feel really stupid when I get in these forums... lol Should I go ahead and
save in the new format and send you that file?
PS Thanks for your help!!
