BaaN Documentation (PDF files)
Hi, Broad Master!

Recently, I clean my PC and consolidate some BaaN Documentations (mainly for BaaN IV) which I collected in the past few years.

Some of them cannot even be found on the offical supports more, such as Sizing Guide and Programming Features.

Any suggestion how to legally share with users here?!

Hi Pokitlok,

Sharing documents in a 'legal' fashion can only happen if these documents are allowed to be distributed freely by their publisher. Baanboard has no relationship with SSA Global and as such we do not have any priviledges to provide this kind of content as such.

I'd also like to know if you still have the information. I am new to Baan4 and have been looking for some printed instructions to help.

Using Baan IV

For you all reference!
  1. Download files and remove the ".zip" suffix
  2. ZIP the files

It is a good reference but may not be published. ;)

For some reasons, its giving "Unexpected end of Archive" error when trying to open the first file after having removed the .zip suffix..

What am i doing wrong?

Move file to :

After :

@echo off
echo Starting Using Baan IV File Merger
echo Merging Files
copy /b
echo Split completed
echo Removing Temporary files that are no longer needed

Now unzip file

Thanks Max!! That was the only thing i didnt do as i was mislead by the instructions to zip all of them together...

Looks pretty old...but surely must be an interesting read...


billymoe 27th March 2007 12:26

Thank you
Thank you for the zip files. I haven't been able to open them yet, but I will keep trying. I am new to Baan and just have to spend time getting used to it.

Yes, it is pretty old, but you know Baan IV was launched almost 10 years ago.

And all the chapters were drafted by some Baan experties (check authors list, you can lots of Baan gurus). :cool:

This material covers all the modules of BaaN IV and highlights all the key functions and features. It is so good for BaaN IV overview.

Anyway, donno why this good material seems have not been published. :confused: I just found a printed copy in a corner of a mess book shelf years ago.

BTW, since Baanboard limits the file type of uploading files, the split file names are added suffix ".zip" before uploading. So, it needs to remove the suffix before zipping.

dear all,

Why I can't unzip this file.
please help me.

or send me a file without zip to

thank you.


sukesh75 24th April 2007 09:39

When you save the file, dont forget to put underscores..
i.e instead of saving it as "Using BaaN" save it as
"" and then do what Max has mentioned in his post...


abas_cool 26th April 2007 07:01

Dear Sukesh75,

can you give that file direct to my email or give me link so I can download that file.
