The Admin page allows you to access the files used by Harry, create scripts, questionares, models, and stories.  Additionally you will be able to view the available MS Agents, and their animations. This will help you create animated characters for your stories.


Readers are tables that contain a list of commands. Scripts are used for regression testing. Questionnaires are used to fill in forms. Models are used as document templates. Stories are used for animated presentations. Select one, then use the List All command button to view all tables of that type. Each table name is prefixed with a type indicator: "script", "quest", "model", and "story". The lst appears in the text box. Doubleclick on the table of your choice, then click the List Selected Command Button. Make your changes, then Doubleclick the table name and click the Update Command Button. Follow this procedure to delete a table.
