Hiya folks,

Well, our current meadery/honey/supplies listing software has been upgraded to a new, greatly expanded version.

Here's the catch: instead of using a database structure that gives each entry and all its fields a row of its own, the new software puts each field in a new row, and has several more tables.

So, moving the data from the old software to the new software will be a lot more than just making a downloaded copy and re-uploading it.

If you've some time, can work with pivot tables, are somewhat familiar with databases and are willing to help, please email me and I'll get you sample data so you can see what needs doing. I'm not going to be able to address it for a while, my next project here is scanning about 300 pages of articles from the AMA, currently sitting on my desk.

Thanks!!
