Timekeeper for Time Dollar
8 October 2005
I am Kent
Gordon. I created the Timekeeper program because I believe
in the Time Dollar concept. I provide
Timekeeper free of charge to Time Dollar organizations.
I urge all of you who have the Timekeeper program, or are thinking
about getting it, to e-mail your questions or suggestions or problems.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Timekeeper for Time Dollar is a program for keeping member
accounts for Time Dollar members and for matching Providers to
The current version of Timekeeper is based on Microsoft Access
2002. The previous versions were based on Access 97 and before
that on Access 2.0. Timekeeper is a Microsoft Windows program
which will run under Windows 95 and 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows
2000, Windows Millennium and Windows XP. Version 2.14 is the current
version of Timekeeper.
I have a newer version of Timekeeper. I am not quite ready
(10/1/05) to make version 2.24 the standard version. If you are
interested in the very latest Timekeeper see Timekeeper
For those of you in the UK there are installation and update
files with a Timekeeper modified for UK address nomenclature.
I have an experimental version of an Internet
If you want to use the Timekeeper program for your Time Dollar
organization you can download a copy. You will need to get a user
ID and a password from me, email@example.com.
When you ask for a password would you tell me where your organization
is located and something about the group it is serving.
I provide two options for installing Timekeeper on your computer.
If you have Microsoft Access 2000 or later you can download the
Access 2000 install. Otherwise
you can download a complete installation
which includes a run-time-only version of Access 97.
If you wish to use Timekeeper on several machines on a LAN
see installing Timekeeper on a LAN.

The changes in Timekeeper 2.14 are quite minor so unless you
have a good reason to update your copy of Timekeeper I would suggest
you do not bother. For more information see changes
Version 2.14 is NOT an update to the so called Timekeeper upgrade,
the version with fancy graphics on some of the forms. If you have
that version and update to version 2.14 you will lose those fancy
graphics and some of the capabilities. I may be able to provide
an update for that version sometime in the future (see
Your update options depend on which Timekeeper you have and
whether you have Access 2000 or later. If you have Access 2000
you might want to use it instead of the run-time-only Access 97
because the two versions sometimes argue over which is the default
Access or because you may wish to use your Access to view or modify
For updating your Timekeeper I provide four different files
to download. Which to use depends on your version of Timekeeper.
Versions 1.31 to 1.38. Most of you have Timekeeper 1.36. If
you have Access 2000 or later your might wish to use the Access
2000 update. Otherwise you should use the Access
Versions before 1.3. A few of you may still have version 0.81.
If you have Access 2000 or later you might wish to use the Access 2000 install. Otherwise you
need to use the complete installation.
Versions 2.1 to 2.13 can use the Access
Versions 1.36.08 or 2.21, the Timekeeper upgrade. This is the
version with fancy graphics on some of the forms. For updates
to the Timekeeper upgrade see Timekeeper
