/F Startup Switch

The /F startup switch defines an alternate Forms file (FORMS.DAT).

The Forms file contains Keystroke's Print Button settings.

To use multiple Forms files:
- Enter the Print Button settings that most or all workstations share.
- Make copies of the default Forms file (FORMS.DAT). Give each copy a standardized file name. For example: FORMS1.DAT, FORMS2.DAT, FORMS3.DAT, etc.
- Use the /F switch to assign a different Forms file to each workstation. For example: Keystroke.EXE /F FORMS2.DAT.
- Change the Print Button settings for each workstation as required.

NOTE: If the /F StartUp Switch is used to define an alternate Forms file and a file extension is not included, the .DAT Data File Extension is added to it (e.g. "/F FormsR1" sets the Forms data file to "FormsR1.dat"). It is recommended to always include the data file extension (normally ".DAT") because it is easier to see exactly what is being requested. If no file extension is desired, add just a period to the filename (e.g. "/F FormsR1.").
