MicroSurvey Data Exchange (MSDX) Training Movies

Some of these movies may have been recorded in a previous version of or even in another one of our products, but in these cases the concepts being demonstrated are identical.


Internet Explorer Tips:

For maximum viewing you can press F11 to hide some of your internet browser toolbars. Press it again to restore the toolbars.


Note for Windows x64 users:

To play the training movies under Windows XP x64, Windows Vista x64, or Windows 7 x64, you need to ensure you are using a 32-bit web browser. The current Macromedia Flash Player does not function correctly in 64-bit web browsers and in this situation the movies will not play.
