How to Download Files
From TDEC's Web Site

Because everyone uses different operating systems and application software, we're using the Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format for some documents. This lets you view and print the documents with all the formating intact. If you don't already have Adobe Acrobat, you'll need to download the free Acrobat Reader Exit TDEC website software. Versions are available for Windows, DOS, Macintosh and various Unix platforms. The software is simple to use, with easy step-by-step instructions.

Some files on this web site are available for download only. These files have been compressed (zipped) and require special software for you to be able to unzip them.   They cannot be viewed using your browser, but must be viewed using your word processor or spreadsheet program, once uncompressed.

Here's how to access the files:

  1. Click on the link of the file you wish to download.  A dialog box will pop up showing you where the file will be saved.  Make sure the directory you want is active, and make note of the file name so you can find it later.  Save the file and wait for it to completely download.
  2. To extract the file, go to the directory where you saved the file using your file manager program.  Find the downloaded file.  Double click on the file name to extract it. 
  3. Find the unzipped file.  If the file has a *.doc extension, it is a Word document, and should be opened using your word processor.  If it has a *.xls or *.dbf extension, it may be opened using a spreadsheet program.

If you have difficulty with a document, contact the Department at [email protected] and we will make every effort to get you the requested document in a format that you can use.
