I'm estimating 60 pages John.

I'm not sure what the second question means, but would like to know, if you have time to explain.

I'm documenting banking procedures carried out on an eighties era database, if that adds clarity.

Thanks for your interest,

Eilleen...not all manuals are created the same. Is your manual 100
pages? 5,000 pages?

It is on using a Note-pad like application or are you documenting a
400 server application?
