typical use for this file when getting your shopping list
together is to first sort the file by Item, Store and Isle
through the entire file, marking the items you need to buy
with an 'x' in the buy column. With the pricing data,
you can decide which store to buy the item from. When
you have marked all the items you need to buy, than sort the
file by Buy (descending), Store and Isle. Than, select
all the items marked as needing to buy (x) for printing and
set that to your print area (under File). Print the selected
list. You can now use this list for your shopping list
... all the items you need to buy are grouped together by
store and than Isle within the store along with a running total
for your shopping list.
you return from shopping, mark all the items you did buy on
your list with a '.' in the Buy field. Also, update any
price changes for the items your purchased. Than, sort the
file again by Buy (descending), Store and Isle. Set the
print area to the remaining items on your list and print the
Buy items for your list of items still needing to buy.
sure to continue to add items to the list that you do buy
which are not currently on the list.
forget to save the file after updating it. Good Luck and
