Thanks to the work that Jenee Woodard does at The Text This Week (textweek.com (http://www.textweek.com/)) in providing lectionary resources (and for her permission to use the tables she created for years A (http://www.textweek.com/yeara/yeara.htm), B (http://www.textweek.com/yearb/yearb.htm), and C (http://www.textweek.com/yearc/yearc.htm)) and the amazing job that Pasquale Amicarelli does in converting html into BibleWorks modules, there is now a BibleWorks module that lists all the texts for Years A, B, and C of the Revised Common Lectionary. Within BW, it is a great way to see if and when a text is used. (The link will show up in the Resource Summary tab.) As a help file, it is very nice to have the weekly texts at your fingertip or just hover over them to get a quick idea of what the text is about.

For now, I have the file downloadable at my blog (http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/), but I've also passed it along to The Bibleworks Blog.

What a wonderful resource! Very helpful indeed.

Is there any way to change the default Bible versions that pop up within the RCL module when you hover over a lectionary text?

Yes, it is possible to change the popup versions in BW7.

On the main BibleWorks menu, select View | Choose Popup Versions. That window gives you the ability to change the versions that pop up. You can even display different versions when you hold down the shift key. These can be changed there, too.

If you need help when you have the Change Popup Versions window open, simply place your cursor on the window and press the F1 key to open the online help.

Blessings,
Glenn

Greetings Glenn, and thank you for your guidance. I made the changes and it worked like a charm.

The more time I spend with BW7, the more I like it. What a fantastic resource. Thanks to you and the BW staff for a great product.

I'm glad that BW is working well for you.

There is so much there, that I still find things that it will do that I never knew was there, or which I forgot about. I just found out one today, in fact.

Blessings,
Glenn

Perhaps I'm trying to run before I can walk but I saw this post about RCL info and thought "that's most useful" so I have downloaded the ZIP file to BW/databases and unzipped and unblocked the files as indicated but cannot see the RCL reference in the Resouces Summary Tab. Do I have to do something like compile these files? Would be grateful if someone could point a real novice at the "how to" thread that's doubtless been posted before. Thanks

1) Keep in mind that it will only show up in the Resource Summary tab if the verse you are looking at actually occurs in the RCL.

2) You can check to see if you are okay by using the menu: Resources > Lectionary > RCL ABC

Thanks MGVH. Your reply #2 showed me something was missing but I couldn't see how to add it. In desparation I tried closing and reopening BW and lo there was Resources > Lectionary > RCL ABC where it hadn't been before. However, I still can't hover/place/click on a verse I know is in the RCL and find any reference to it on the Resource Summary tab. Is there something else I should do now? I thought, for example, that it would tell me that John 4:5 was Lent 3 Year A. Am I mistaken?

The RCL does show up for me at John 4.5.
If it shows up in your Resources now, then it should be good to go.
Two things I can think of:
1) Did your Resource Summary tab refresh so that it is indeed showing John 4.5?

2) On the Resource Summary tab, click on the "References" sub-tab. Make sure the RCL option is checked.

Many thanks; all as it should be now. learning all the time what a powerful friend BW7 will be once I've learnt to drive it. Have been dipping into the forums and am frankly amazed at what is going on out there and what can be done. <What a resource> PTL

I downloaded the zipfile and unzipped it. but I can't find it in the resources summary as you said. I am working with BW9 if that makes a difference. you mentioned something about .CMH being blocked--I don't know what that is or how to access it.

Thanks

Here are the directions from the Old in the New BW blog (http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/?page_id=151):
In order to get modules to work, be sure to do the following:
Step 1. Download the file as found on this page.
Step 2. Unzip the file into your databases subfolder of BibleWorks
Step 3. Right click on the CHM file (itíll look like all other HTML help icons), go to Properties and make sure the box for Block is unchecked. (If youíre using Windows 7, the Properties box will be a bit different. Press the button that says Unblock. (see Jim Westís blog (http://zwingliusredivivus.wordpress.com/2011/08/11/having-fits-and-going-insane-installing-user-modules-for-bibleworks-9-in-windows-7/)).
Step 4. Start up BibleWorks and the module is available either through the Menu system (under Resources) or in the Analysis tabs.

Thank you I ws able to unblock the CHM file I then removed the three files from the lectionary subfolder and placed them directly in the database it worked. Thank you very very much.
