We now have 2479 records in the Superlative Native Tree Database. The best way to enter more than 2 or 3 records is to create an Excel import file and send it to John Peterson. The attachment provides instructions. The first worksheet gives the record layout and explains the kind of information that goes into each field. The behind the scenes SQL record layout is also given. The second worksheet is the actual template. Copy it to a new workbook and enter data, then save it to the name you want. The third worksheet is a work in progress. Data from old lists may be copied into an Excel worksheet, but then the information in each field must be in the right format. For example, your original dates might be in a format such as mm/dd/yyyy. These entries would have to be converted to an equivalent yyyymmdd. The latter would be formatted as general or numeric with zero decimal positions.
