Work with Data

The Work with Data Dialog is used to display and manipulate lists of Places, Addresses, Occupations, Religions, Groups/Castes, National or Tribal Origins, and Source Types. it is invoked via Tools > Work With Data, and for each Data type, it displays a list of the defined items and allows you to:

  • Edit a value (e.g. if you mispelled an address)
  • Merge or replace 2 or more values (e.g. if you want to standardise all references to an Occupation, converting Ag Lab to Agricultiural Labourer)
  • See the records that reference a data item, optionally displayed in a Query window or added to a Named List
  • Run a Report to display the list
