Generating Holidays Dates from Holidays Rules
When Q++ generates holidays, it uses the holidays rules you have defined to calculate the dates when these holidays occur for a range of years. It then adds to this list any one-time date that occur in that range of years.
•The holidays rules, as most of the Q++ data, are located on the server that you and your co-workers share. This ensures that any changes you make to holidays rules are immediately available to everyone.
•However, when generating a diary, Q++ use the list of holidays generated here. This list is located on your PC to accelerate the process of diary generation. That is why each Q++ user must regenerate his/her list of holidays, even though you all share the same holidays rules.
You will rarely need to ask Q++ directly to generate the holidays list because, when the need arises, either because you have modified a holidays rule or because someone else has, you will get a message from Q++ offering to re-generate the holidays list for you.
Generating the holidays list is simple :
1.Select the range of years for which you want Q++ to calculate the result of the holidays rules. It is always a good idea to use a more extended range of years than you might think necessary. Remember that a 1999 diary might have a few day of 1998 at the beginning and a few days of 2000 at the end. You can set the default range of years that is proposed to you, using Preferences.
2.Click on the Generate button.
