Converting old Recipe Center Software database to version 5.0
Recipe databases from lower versions of Recipe Center Software can still be used in the new
Recipe Center version 5.0. To do this, one has to convert the database first, following these
1) Open Recipe Center version 5.0 software. Then, click Database > Open from the menu.
2) From the Open a database window, select Old Database (*.cmc) as File type then select
an old RCS database file to convert. Click the Open button.
You will be asked whether you want to delete the old database file.
G Selecting Yes means that when converted, the old .cmc file will be deleted from the
folder. The newly converted database (.rcs file) will then be placed in the folder \\My
Documents\My Recipe Center\Data. Selecting No means a copy of the old database (in .cmc
file format) will be kept even after the conversion process.
The program will then proceed with the conversion whether you selected Yes or No. A
confirmation message will be shown if it is successful. Click OK to close the pop-up dialog
The converted recipe database will then be automatically loaded in your Recipe Center
