1) Restore Database: Entries in MoneyCare + program are stored in a file type called mdb file or MS Access Database file. When you open MoneyCare + program, previously entered data like Income/Expense details are accessed from this file. By using Open Database, you can open any specified database and it will load automatically all the default settings/data in it. You need not select database each time you start MoneyCare + program. After the first installation, Database file in installed folder will open automatically. If you want to open another database like previously backed up database or database file from another location, then you will have to select it using Open Database. Click Open Database from File menu, select the database from relevant folder, click Open button and this will open the selected database through MoneyCare + program. You can invoke Open Database menu by pressing the keys Ctrl and O simultaneously or from the File menu in program interface. Window for selecting database is shown in Figure 1.
