Thanks to both of you.
Fabbian, that solved
the problem. I did essentially what you did with your Windows 7 computer and it works. Anywhere I put myself, the relevant charts are open and quilted. For some reason I had assumed that I had to select individual RNC's, depending on the area I wanted to cover.
H.S., that's the kind of list I'd been looking for, though by using the
Active Chart Directory correctly, I eliminated the need.
But not until I'd gone to the trouble of copying the NOAA website's list of charts, pasting it into Word, then using the database tool to order the titles alphabetically. I tried to upload it (in case the folks at NOAA needed it) but it the file was too large. Not hard to make, though.
