Hi Dave,

Well - that one nearly ate my lunch. 

I have your patched database. 

You now have an additional plant taxonomy in your database. Instead of "Southwest" in the name it has "SW". Use that taxonomy for all things going forward.

You can delete the old "Southwest" version.

In addition, you still have 98 things from your old USDA plant list that should be reconciled (Toolbar | Advanced | Reconcile Sightings) against this new "SW" taxonomy. Then remove that one as well.

  1. Click here to download your database. 
  2. Unzip to find your new database inside.
  3. Exit Birder's Diary if it is running.
  4. Rename your current C:\Birder's Diary\data\database.mdb to C:\Birder's Diary\data\database-bad-plants.mdb.
  5. Now copy the file from inside the ZIP file to C:\Birder's Diary\data\ and rename it to database.mdb.
  6. Run BD. 

If you like, I can get onto your computer over the internet and take care of this for you. If you like, just shoot me an email at jeff@birdersdiary.com to setup a time.

Thanks, and sorry for the long time this took. But I did fix a bug and improve a couple other things.

ok, when I unzipped the file, the new database is named "database-old.mdb"

before I proceed, is that correct?

Thanks for all the work you've put in on this

Dave
