Will using the Installer instead of manually updating delete our in-office codes we use within SoftDent?

It did not remove ours.  I suggest printing a list of all of Your ADA codes.  One frustrating token is that the update does change the description of some of our codes.  I just go in afterward and correct any that changed, very easy.

Thanks for getting this out so soon!   This really eases the utilization prep for new codes.

I clicked the zip drive but don't see how I save it to desktop.  All I can do is open it but I don't want to run it until the end of the year.  How do I save it??
