View Full Version : A Running List Of Book And Version Names

02-04-2005, 08:26 AM
Hear ye! Hear ye! A notice to all who are interested in compiling databases to share with other BibleWorks users!

It would be most beneficial if we could begin listing all book and version names that we use as we develope BibleWorks databases to share with others. This will aid those who install the files to avoid conflicts, it will also save the developers the headache of revising files that are in conflict with others.

If you have developed a database for sharing with others please post to this thread the list of book names and version names that you have used. I will then post a master list on my website in the future, noting any conflicts. At that point, we could work out the problems on the forum.

Also, if you have a "wish list" of resources for BibleWorks databases, post the wish list to the forum in the proper book name format so that we can potentially resolve future issues. Of course, the folks at BW can do as they please in future "official databases" but as users, it would be helpful if we could "standardize."

I think it would be best to simply submit the list as the example given below:
