Hi! I have been sent a project in Transit XV with some dictionaries, but the PM realised after a while that she needed me to add a couple of extra mdb dictionaries. I have been looking in the manuals but do not seem to find out how to do that!! Could you give me a hand? It is quite urgent!

Which version? Jun 1, 2009

Please specify which version you are using.

I use Transit 3.0 Smart, so the explanation below may be helpful for XV, too.

If you work with Transit 3.0 Satellite version, you may not be able to add dictionaries: you can only use those that have been added to the project by the PM. In higher versions you have to go to Project/Settings, and select the Dictionary tab. To create new dictionaries, you have to go to "File/New", and select "Dictionary/Database".

Kind regards,
