Some ComTrac users have had problems when importing the Diamond monthly order form. We provide Diamond DOS order form files in pre-loaded format for your convenience. Download the proper file and follow the instructions below to import the new order form.
Call or click (firstname.lastname@example.org) to order your year's subscription. You can also use PayPal to pay us, though it takes longer to process than calling or emailing us directly!

Diam1003.zip is the March 2010 order form, already pre-loaded into ComTrac format (Net prices are unchanged) Note: Includes January and February 2010 order forms for your convenience.
Note: The earlier version filename was named Diam0509.zip accidentally. For those of you importing the order form into Dos ComTrac through the menu choices, you'd find a problem in starting your order. For those of you following the instructions below, there should not be any difference.
