Before starting a build, you may need to extract a current database for your 800xA graphics, Symphony Plus graphics, or PPB graphics

Choosing database types and 800xA graphics

In the System File Specification dialog, check the boxes that apply to database types (and 800xA graphics) in your project:

If there are other database types you wish to build in, please contact GMCL.

More information is available:

Specifying where to search for your database, 800xA graphics and Function Code files

Entering paths to databases, 800xA graphics and function code help files

Note the databases, graphics and function code files do not have to be located on the same computer, or on the build computer, and DBDOC access is read-only. But if you don't have access to the computer that contains the source files, you will have to copy them to your local computer. In this case, leave the directory structure the same. Using UNC naming conventions may be helpful if you later move to a new computer.

Adding more than one path

You many also add the location of your function code pdf help files.

After specifying the locations of your files, click Next to have BuildPlus find your files.
