Topic: Spreadsheet import to Recorder
Just thought I'd bounce an idea off y'all. I know it Friday arvo (!!) but here goes...
Basically, here at GIGL, we have recently been provided with several databases of ecological information, from a variety of sources, and expect to receive more in the near future. I have been trying to work out how best to get this information into Recorder. I'm not sure how cost effective it will be to keep contacting Mike Weideli to work his magic. I am fairly confident in my ability to 'clean' data and extract to a flat file (e.g. spreadsheet format) and am thinking of asking him to build an improved spreadsheet import routine (the existing Import Wizard is very limited). I was just wondering whether such a tool might be useful to any of you guys/ whether we can share the cost/ agree on the key fields that we would want it to handle??
Have a fantastic weekend,
