( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Actually, the main point of this project is to have the data in an easier-to-deal-with format for the end user. (A change to data in one place frequently requires changes to data in another table or two, etc, and having a process in place that will deal with the 6-digit ID number for you, rather than having to keep them all straight.) Another benefit is NOT changing the database directly, so that the likely changes can be compared to the current data before the changes are actually uploaded to the DB.

A web form may still work, although one nice thing about Excel is that I do have a base worksheet already that I can build on.

Thanks!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
