Specifying the Database 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 the "Data" folder inside the application folder where SpellQuizzer was installed. The default location is:

C:\Program Files\SpellQuizzer\Data\DB.sqdb

As stated above, for most users the location of the SpellQuizzer database never comes up. However, if you are using SpellQuizzer in a networked environment and need to have SpellQuizzer work with a shared SpellQuizzer database that is stored at a different location you can perform the following steps:

  1. Select "Specify database location..." from the File menu.

  2. When the Open dialog screen is displayed locate the SpellQuizzer database file you want to use.
  3. Click the Open button on the Open dialog.

After following the above steps SpellQuizzer will use the specified database rather than the default database that SpellQuizzer creates when it is first run on the computer.

Note: If you need to save your SpellQuizzer database to a networked location so that other SpellQuizzer users on your network can access it see the Specifying the Database Location topic.
