The physical location of your *Aliases* is initially in the same folder as your Instant Database records. (This location is initially "C:\Program Files (x86)\Pathagoras\IDBs".) However, you may, for any reason, change this location. If you do, you must 're-point' to its location.

   Your goal in this exercise could be for one of three purposes:

   (1) just to see where the *Alias* file is currently located;

   (2) to move the physical storage location of the current records; or

   (3) to reset the pointer to the location where the *Alias* file you want to use is currently stored.

   You can determine the current 'pointer value' for your *Aliases* and open the *Alias* file ('multichoice.xlsx') in several ways.

Manual Navigation:

  If you know its physical location, just navigate to multichoice.xlsx and open (or move) it.

Via the Pathagoras Features drop down list:

Pathagoras Features | Authoring/Editing Tools | *Alias* Lists. Click the Edit button on the resulting screen

From the Utilities/Settings screen:

Click the <Show All Settings> button from the face of the Utilities/Settings screen and then click the *Alias* Lists tab.

   To move the file, or reset the pointer (and optionally move the content of your *Alias* Lists), click the 'navigate' button (the one with the three dots) and follow the instructions. Navigate to the desired location and lock in the new location by pressing "OK".

   When you have finished re-pointing, and if an *Alias* file exists at both the original and the target locations, Pathagoras will ask whether you want to combine the two lists (and if so, how duplicate entries should be handled) or keep the original or the target List. Respond as appropriate.
