Todd -
Is it possible to "cut and paste" a For Sale List (or any other list) that I have generated from the YL software into a word processing document such as Microsoft Works? If yes, can you give instructions. Thanks

The best wayt to do this is to export the data.

YuleLog has a powerful export feature. Once you have the list of items displayed, that you would like to export, go to the report screen that shows these items.

Use the pull down File menu, select Import/Export and select Export Records. This will let you export your collection so that you can past it into e-mail or bulletin boards. Click Export and you will see a dialog box that will let you save the list in several formats. Tab-Separated Text works best. Give the file a name (i.e.. sale.txt), choose which folder/directory you want to save it in and click on OK. You will see a dialog box that will let you choose what information you want in the report. The check marks indicate which fields will be exported. You can change the field order by clicking on a field name and dragging it up or down. When you have selected and reordered the fields as you wish, click on "Format output using current layout" and then click on OK. YuleLog will export the information to a text file that can be opened with any word processor or text reader (SimpleText on Macintosh or WordPad on Windows). You can then cut and paste the information as needed.
