    You will need to create a login procedure to automatically boot the UDB each time you start QUINDOS. In the main command buffer window type the following

    Code:
    EDTPRC          (NAM=GDBPRC:LGIN$PRC)
    execute the command to edit and add a BOOT command which will look something like this...

    Code:
    BOOT            (FIL=enter the location of your UDB here, DBS=UDB)
    You can use the browse function from within the BOOT dialogue page to navigate to the location of your UDB. Once you have finished editing the BOOT command, click the continue icon (bottom LH corner of screen) and the login procedure will be saved to the GDB. Exit QUINDOS and re-start and you should see your UDB in the database list.

    I see this is answered, but I will add that there is a way to specify a .udb file name a search directory(ies) where Quindos will look for a .udb and will boot it automatically if it finds it.

    Launch Quindos
    Select an environment name to edit settings when the window comes up where you can select an environment
    Click the Advanced button
    Click the check box for "Advanced View"
    Browse for Databases >> SearchLists >> System in the left pane

    Click on "FileNames" and then double click on the UDB entry to change the .udb filename, if necessary. Quindos will look for this filename on startup and will boot if it finds it.

    Click on "UDB" and then double click on the 999 entry to edit the search directory. Optionally, right click to add a new entry. You can specify a value different than 999 if you want the search to have higher precedence when looking for the .udb with the filename specified in the "FileNames" entry.

      Many thanks geddes, I will try your suggestion offline.

        Hi all,

        I see it is answered, but in addition I like to mention that there is a third way to automatically boot an UDB on Quindos startup. Just name your UDB-file "Quindos7.UDB" and copy it to your Quindos database directory (same directory like SDB, ...). This directory is the default search directory for UDBs after installation. As described in the previous post, you can modify it.
