After you have downloaded data from the Internet, you may end up with a lookup item you need to split up into multiple items. This is easy, just follow this procedure:
|1.||Bring up the data entry window for the lookup item you want to edit.|
|2.||Click the Split button on the toolbar. |
You see the 'Split Lookup Item' window.
|3.||Specify the separator you want to use when splitting up the text, then click the Split button.|
|4.||BookCAT adds the new lookup values to the list below. |
You can now edit the new lookup values before you save the changes to the database.
|5.||Click the Update button to save the changes.|
BookCAT adds the new lookup items to the lookup table, then updates all data fields linked to this lookup table.
Please note that single item lookup fields (for example Publisher) will only contain the value on the first row in the list after you have used the Split function.
