[Solved] Run-time error 13
I can get into Birder's diary just fine. But for the first time ever, the program would not let me add birds. When I selected "Add" I got the following message: BVD36 - Run-time error '13": Type mismatch. When I selected "OK" the program closed. All other functions of Birder's Diary (View/edit, Observers, Locations, Trips, Reports) work fine. What can I do to continue?
Thanks, Jeff. I should be able to proceed from here. I'll contact you again if I need further help.
Help, please! The purchase and download went beautifully. So did the installation. But when I entered Birder's Diary, I see that the new version is not connected to my old database. So my lists, trips and locations, etc., are not connected. I'm sure there is a new database somewhere, but I can't find it. My old one is in Documents\Birder's Dairy. (I'm using MS Windows 10.) Somehow I need to get the old dB into the new folder. I'm so close, but....
Probably it's something simple. I hope you can help.
I appreciate the good instructions. I was able to do the backup and restore just fine, and my data & sightings all seem to be there. Now I just need to learn how to use the new BD! Hopefully there will be enough guidance in the Support tools to show me whatever I need.
