Topic: Extracting from MapMate using protected and notable species lists
I am trying to extract all the protected and notable species from our current MapMate database. I have various protected species lists that I can use/combine to extract the species via an Access query, e.g. JNCC's latest taxon designation spreadsheet available on their website. However, there many species onthe JNCC list that are not found in MapMate's taxa table. It could be that these species are not in MapMate, or it could be that they have a different name or spelling. I can't think of a solution without going through each one individually to find the correct name.
Has anyone already done similar matching, and if so what was your solution? Any help/advise anyone can give would be appreciated.
