Index to Lex help files

Over the years Lex Systems has published and mailed to its customers many tips, troubleshooting solutions, and general library automation procedures.   The older files are still available were consolidated into An old archive help file which is still available, although the articles still relevant are being moved over to the Lex1 database below.  It will primarily benefit the DOS Lexifile users.

A much larger and more current database is available directly from articles posted to our keyword searchable Lex1 Yahoo Mail Group.  You do not have to belong to the group in order to read the messages.  Taken collectively this archive approximates an online manual for the product. 

Here is an index to that group.  Click on any entry to link to that specific message.
