How do I open my data file in Charting Companion?

The first time Charting Companion is opened, it will ask if you would like to search for your family files. If you select yes, the program will automatically scan your computer's hard drive(s) for all data files. The files are then displayed in the Open dialog list box. Just click on a file in this dialog and select the Open button.

Tip: If you choose not to scan when first opening the program, you can always do so later by selecting File, Scan disk for files on the menu, or by clicking the Scan Disk button in the Open dialog. You can also re-scan by following the same steps.

Also, the first time you open the program, Charting Companion will automatically put the files you opened most recently in your genealogy program in your Recently Used File List, located under File in the menu bar. Simply click on the file in this list to open it.
