The Time Logger Command Line
|Top Previous Next|
You may use the Time Logger command line to specify a person and/or a time record database. Here's how to add a shortcut with a command line that you specify.
At a minimum, this command line must contain the text "TIMELOG". That is, the name of the executable file (Windows assumes an extension of .exe).
However, you may specify additional pieces of information on the command line: a time record database, a person, and/or a timelog.ini filename.
Specifying a Time Record Database
Simply add the name of the file anywhere on the command line. Please remember that the application's executable file name, TIMELOG, must be the first thing on the command line. For example:
Specifying a Person
Add the text "/User" to the command line, followed by the user's name enclosed in quotes. For example,
C:\timelog\timelog.exe /User "Mary Smith"
If you specify person and file name, the user specification must appear first.
Examples of Valid Command Lines
c:\timelog\TIMELOG.EXE /User "Reggie Wilson" "c:\My Docs\MyTime.mdb"
