To bring up the Personal Data screen, select the Database option on the menu bar, then click the Personal Data item from the drop down or simply click the Personal Data icon on the tool bar.
The Personal Data window allows users to record people's names and birth data so the birth data can be used repeatedly in all astrology windows.

icon to clear all the fields before entering data.
To save the data into database click on the Save icon.

The birth time should use birthplace time, not China time. This astrology system is based on the Yin Yang theory. If the birth time is at noon, then the birth time is Horse hour. Horse contains Fire. The weather temperature at noon is normally hot. If USA birth time at noon converts to China time, the birth time becomes at night, with conflicts with Yin Yang theory.
The birthday and birth time should use solar calendar, not the lunar calendar. This is because the Chinese Astrology Ba-Zi birth chart is built only by the solar calendar.
Time zone, Longitude, True Solar (Sundial) Time options can be activated from System Options. To click on the Sundial button, the software will adjust the birth time in the screen to the True Solar Time. Do not click button twice, because it will adjust birth time to Time Solar time again.
(nnn.nn) is city longitude. If you leave it blank, then the longitude will use the longitude of the selected time zone. If you need more accurate birth time, then you can enter the city longitude. For example, Los Angel city longitude is 118w15. So we should select West in the Longitude dropdown box and enter 118.15 in (nnn.nn) textbox.
