When You Need Help

When you need help while working with VPME, the first place to turn is the VPM Enterprise documentation, which consists of this User’s Guide and the Technical Reference manual. You can access the VPM Enterprise documentation from the VPME Help menu (see VPM Enterprise and Visual FoxPro Online Help). Chances are you’ll find the help you need in the VPM Enterprise documentation. 

If the VPM Enterprise documentation doesn't provide the help you need, visit the Support pages on the ProMatrix Web to learn about the other ProMatrix Support resources available to you.

ProMatrix Newsgroups

Tip: The ProMatrix Newsgroups are the cornerstone of ProMatrix Technical Support. It is important that you learn to access them and to use them.
