Split a lookup item

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

To split a lookup item into multiple items, 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.SoftCAT 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.
SoftCAT 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.
