[Solved] ABA 2022 Tax List - Import failure
I just purchased the ABA 2022 tax list and attempted to auto-import. Things seemed to be going well at first. I opened the program (6.0, Build 17) and immediately the program opened the pop-up window: Import Dowloaded Taxonomic Lists. Only one list available appeared on the list: Birds ABA - 2022. I selected that list and clicked on Auto Import. Next pop-up window opened: Import New Taxonomic List and Checklist Data.
Then, after I clicked confirming I wanted to proceed, a new pop-up window opened with this error message: "This file is not recognized as a Birder's Diary import file for [Taxonomy]!"
The only option is to click "OK" which closed that pop-up window. But then the program was frozen. I could not close any windows by clicking the X. I could close the program by right-clicking on the icon tray and selecting close program.
I tried this import multiple times with the same result. I also downloaded the taxonomy file once again and tried with that, coming up with the same result.
So I am stuck. Please help.
Sorry for the confusion.
Please upgrade to the latest Build of v6.0 - 25 or greater. Now you can auto-import the tax list.
So many things to read and check. No problem, easy to miss all the details.
Let me know if I can assist further.
Ahhh. Tripped up by the fine print once again.
But that seemed to do the trick.
