Open a NEW Database

If you wish to open a database that is not on the most recent list, click on Open/New and TM will display a standard Windows directory screen. TM will default to the directory name TM5Data - we suggest that you keep all of your TM Databases in this directory.
TM will display a list of the TM Databases that have been previously created. Pick the one you wish to open and then click on the Open button. TM will open that Database and return to the TM Main Menu.
