  • If a patient exists with same name, but other 'Card Number', then 'Edit Mode' is entered.
  • In both cases, click 'Save' to save to database.

Automatic mode: If you wish to automatically select a patient and switch to Viewer as soon as import file is present, edit the file 'bin\Ldbs.ini'. Enter/change in Section [Patient] the line: 'AutoActivatePatient=1'. normally set to 0)
