    2. On the home page, click "Tutorial", then in "Part 5 - Manage an HFSQL Client/Server database", double-click "Full application (Exercise)".
    3. A dialogue box prompts you to open the project you worked on in the previous lesson. You can open the local copy or the original project. Select "Open the local copy".
