Hi Jeff. I'm afraid that I have created a problem for myself when trying to add a new thing to my Clements 2022 Taxonomy File.

I imported a number of files from e-bird and there were a couple that had an entry that Clements did not recognize. Namely, Southern/Northern Giant-Petrel. So I tried to create a new thing with that name.

Later I decided to just remove these new entries and I deleted the thing that I had created.

However, now in the quick search bar, that name/thing still shows up and it generates a fatal error if I select it.

Also, my life list in BD is now 3 counts higher than in e-bird.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for posting.

See here for how to add Slashes, Spuhs, etc.

To fix the Quick Search bar, refresh your Name Search table.

  1. View | Options, Special/More TAB
  2. Click the Refresh button (Refresh SmartSearch Table)
  3. Exit and restart BD. 
  4. Now test your Quick Search field.

Also, now check your Life List. If that is still incorrect, please tell me exactly where/how you are see the wrong counts.

Thanks.

Thanks Jeff. All is good with the Quick Search Bar after doing the refresh/exit/restart.

Lifelist count - The world background lifer bar still show 3 more species than ebird does even after recalculating and restarting BD. I will look at the Report option to see if there is a way to display new lifers since a specific date and then check that against the ebird equivalent.

Some background

Just returned from a month long trip where I recorded 30+ trips in ebird and I imported them last week into BD.

Ebird shows 2374 lifers and the BD lifer bar shows 2377

I will try to find the discrepancy manually or perhaps just restore my database and then re-import the ebird trips.

Hi again Jeff. All is good, the discrepancy as due to changes I made in BD but did not propagate to my ebird files that I use as a 2nd backup. Thanks again for your help.
