File: Data File Documents Are Disk Based

Last reviewed: October 27, 1994
Article ID: Q41512

Summary:

Microsoft File is different from other database applications in that the data file document is disk based. This means that only part of the data file document is kept in memory; the rest of the data file is on disk. File automatically moves parts of the data file between memory and disk as needed.

In other words, File automatically saves data files while they are being worked on. However, to ensure that no information is lost, use the Quit command to exit File.

Forms and reports are memory-based (RAM) documents and must be saved just as they are saved in other applications. One form and one report is stored with each data file.
