KEYED IN NOTES NOT IN FIELDBOOK

Post by Adams » Wed Apr 20, 2005 2:22 pm

WHEN THE ADD COMMENT FUNCTION IS USED THE NOTES ARE IN THE RAW FILE BUT DO NOT SHOW UP IN THE FBK FILE. IS THERE A WAY TO GET THOSE TO INTO THE FBK FILE BY CHANGING A SETTING? IF NOT COULD THIS BE ADDED IN THE NEXT VERSION RELEASE?

Hi,

Yes you're correct that the notes are written to the raw file and do not get exported when a FBK file is exported from FieldGenius. As you already know, we setup our FBK export to export figure information to help users get linework into LDD.

At first when we switched to the new raw format, we expected that people would use their Survey Link program (which is part of the LDD Survey module) to import the FieldGenius raw file. This way they would have more information available than can currently be exported via FBK file.

More and more users are asking for us to add more functionality to our FBK export so they can skip importing the raw file into Survey Link. It is something we'll look at when we start working on the next version.
