Loading XML Song Files Into DJ Printer
----------------------------------------
This is one of the longest processes but is only necessary when you want to refresh the XML Songs Files.

The other process that runs as long is the HD Songs Search Process for MP3 Song Files on your hard drive.
 
 
Now that you have refreshed the XML Song Files in PCDJ, let’s load those XML Song Files into DJ Printer.

Once they are loaded into DJ Printer you can create reports in many different formats and sorts.

Before loading the XML Song Files, fill out the User Options Screen.

The data from this screen is used on all of the reports to identify your DJ Company.

Now you can print Song Lists with your custom info and pass it on to your clients, clubs and radio stations. Everyone that needs to know what songs are available and what songs were played during a selected time range.

Now let’s load some XML Song Files…
