Abstract : File characteristics: Program and Database (8 files). Physical description: 2 computer diskettes; 3 1/2 in.; high density; 1.44MB. System requirements: PC compatible; DOS; FoxPro. The Pdwriter system has been developed to assist people who write and classify position and job descriptions. The system consists of a program which allows the user to chose menu statements keyed to a particular type of work. Based upon the user's selections, the system builds a description that contains duty statements and required factor statements. Descriptions may be viewed and revised; saved as data files for revision by Pdwriter; saved as text files for editing with a word processor; and printed on a dot-matrix or laser printer. The program may be run on a stand-alone PC or on a Lan file server. Each user can select a default file storage location as well as screen color options. This program may not be downwardly compatible for use with files created using previous versions of the software.
