Saving the Database to a New Location

For most users the location of the SpellQuizzer database never comes up. When SpellQuizzer is started for the first time SpellQuizzer creates a new empty SpellQuizzer database and stores it in a the "Data" folder inside the application folder where SpellQuizzer was installed. The default location is:

C:\Program Files\Data\DB.sqdb

As stated above, for most users the location of the SpellQuizzer database never comes up. But if you are using SpellQuizzer in a networked environment and you need to save the database to a location that multiple computers can access then you can perform the following steps:

  1. Select "Save currently open database to new location..." from the File menu.

  2. When the Save As dialog screen is displayed locate the location you want the SpellQuizzer database saved to and specify the name you wish to use (DB.sqdb is what is normally used).
  3. Click the Save button on the Save As dialog.

After following the above steps the database is copied to the specified name and location and SpellQuizzer will use that location going forward. If you specified a network location that other computers on the same network can access then each computer can use the same database. To do this you will need to specify the database location for each of the other computers' installation of SpellQuizzer.
