If you create and/or edit records in Connexion, you can save records to your Local Save File as you work and retrieve them at any time.
If you do not set up a specific save file, records will be automatically saved to a file on your computer's hard drive. In this case, you can only access saved records from your specific machine.
Below are basics on using local save files. For more information, see OCLC's How to Use the Local Save File in Connexion Client tutorial or see comprehensive documentation in OCLC's Save Bibliographic Records.
To access records from other machines, you can set up a save file on the G: drive:
You can create multiple save files by following the steps above, but only one file can be your default at a given time.
If you're moving to a new computer and have already set up a save file on the G: drive or elsewhere, you'll need to re-link it to Connexion on your new machine:
Save an open record to your local save file by hitting F4 or by clicking Action > Save Record to Local File.
If you use multiple save files, verify the current default by selecting File > Local File Manager. You can change the default file by selecting the appropriate file and clicking Set as Default. Because there can only be one default at a time, you will need to do this each time you want to save to a different file.
Retrieve records from your save file by hitting F3 or by clicking Cataloging > Search > Local Save File.
Clicking OK in the search box will retrieve all of your records, or you can perform a specific search.
If you use multiple save files, you can choose the file from which to retreive records by selecting from the drop-down at the top under "Local File."
If you use multiple save files, you can move a record between files by opening the record and then clicking Action > Move File and then selecting the appropriate save file.
