Topic: Determination batch update

Mike,

We have a version of JNCCDet1Determinations that has been modified to hard code the old and new TLIKs, to help us sort out problems caused by an old version of the taxon dictionary. There are a couple of problems with it, not serious but I can't see how to fix them.

1. it doesn't seem to set the dates entered/changed on the new/old determinations to today's date, with the result that a subsequent Import Latest doesn't pick them up.

2. it seems to update records for other related taxa as well as the TLIK specified, and we don't want this. In this case the old TLIK is for Micarea prasina sensu auct. p.p. and the new one is Micarea prasina s.lat., but it is also changing records for Micarea byssacea.

The report is attached. Can you help?

Hi

I have a had go, but not tested it. Unlikely to do much harm, and more likely not to run. However, please backup before trying.
