Stan, I found that the order that you enter the information is critical to
getting the phonebook to save:
- 1. From the fax menu, select 'Define Phonebooks'
- 2. Enter a name to give the phonebook in the upper lefthand dialog.
- 3. Make sure file is selected, then what I do is click on the folder Icon
next to the filename box. This opens up a standard win9x file dialog that
you can select where to place the file, and give it a name. After you name
the file, and select Open, it will tell you that the file does not exist,
and asks if you would like to create it. Say yes.
- 4. Click on the New/Change button in the lower left corner of the phonebook
window. This completes the phonebook (yes it's slightly backwards - click
the new/change after entering all the information, not before!).
You can then click on OK to exit the window, and when you go into the
phonebook it will show up as a tab where you can enter the numbers and
Hope that helps.
