Deletion GRNs.pdf

Knowledge database user guide - this is a scanned version of the original manual and is therefore a little out-of-date. In particular:

- the event and trace chapters are missing;
- operators beyond that in the initial release (+,-,/,*) are missing;
- some of the later data types are not covered;
- access to attribute rules has moved in later version of Omega to a separate field and is not accessed via the attribute "Name" field;
- the screenshots are all from the DOS-version but are still mostly correct.

During the scanning of this low-resolution version many of the pages were very tight to the right hand page edge and there may be printing issues as a result.I have a better version of the document available for those who cannot use the low-res version - it is however over 90MB in size and, time permitting, I will try to shrink this in the future. In the meantime I am quite happy to email or burn onto CD the existing large version.
