How Do I Setup and Send Commands to the Register?

This lesson will teach you to setup a command and executing that command to send files to the register. In our system we have several premade commands that cover the majority of the files that you will need to send to the register. But there may be times that you create a unique file that needs to be sent that is not included in our other commands. For this lessons example, we will be creating a command that will send a menu file that we created in the lesson How Do I Setup A Menu File?
