Scanner: Whistler 1040
Software: ARC500

Hello, I am new to programming and am having a hard time trying to program my scanner. I have read the ARC manual and tried searching the BUTEL website for information but I either overlooked it or it's not there.

Here is my issue:

I can program the scanner via the ARC500 software for my County. I want to add agencies from Nevada and California. I can't seem to find a way to get them all listed on one data base. I can't seem to merge one saved file into the current open file.

For example, I have my County agencies file open on ARC500. When I try to add a file by clicking the "OPEN" option from the menu, the current file closes and the file I selected opens.

I would like to add the saved file to the current, open file.

I know I am doing something wrong, but I don't know what. Any help / suggestions would be appreciated.
