Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Global program options are set from the Program Options Window. To change the options click "Edit". Configurable fields will change from Green to White. When finished cick "Save & Close" or "Cancel". Changes here will affect all records in the program.

Note: It is important to understand how ADCAR treats Day/Month/Year intervals. Day and Year intervals compute to the exact day. Month intervals compute to the last day of the calendar month. Events like pilot medicals and checkrides that are good to the end of the calendar month should use month intervals. Passports and events that are good only to the calendar day should use Day or Year intervals.
