Suppose you had a vertical file and wanted to convert it to a computer‐based file. What would you need? In a computer‐based vertical file system, documents such as pages of text, booklets, newspaper clippings and photographs are stored in files that can be accessed by computer. A scanner is used to enter documents into the system. The documents are indexed by manual indexing, automatic full‐text indexing or both, and they are kept in computer disk storage. Document management software is used for indexing and document retrieval. Vertical file users can view stored documents on a computer screen, copy page images to a floppy disk, or print the images.
