Topic: Dictionary Upgrade 0000004K-0000004P Issue

Hi all,

I have just upgraded Recorder 6 to the latest version 6.30.0.291.

When I tried to update the dictionary version (initially 0000004K), it worked fine until version 0000004P, where I got the error message:
"The dictionary update has completed with 107 errors.

If there are only a few errors it may be safe to use this dictionary, but you should seek assistance to confirm this."

It does not seem to be possible to update the dictionary to version 0000004Q, any help is very welcome as I am not sure if these errors might affect our data.

Here is the error log attached (I have removed the Licence key but if needed I am happy to supply it by PM/email).

All the best,

Claudia

Re: Dictionary Upgrade 0000004K-0000004P Issue

Hi

It looks like your dictionary may have been out of step after 4K, but  Report Dic2 Statistics should have picked this up.  Did it give you the expected results after 000004K?.  Did you run it before upgrading to 6.30 or after and what does it show if you run it now ?   

Looking at the error reports I think it safe to use R6, but it would be sensible  to identify the reason for this problem before continuing with further dictionary updates which might make the situation worse.

There ares some issues around Report Dic2. The latest version is attched to avoid any conuison,

Hi Mike,

Sorry for the late reply.

Before the 004L update the results were:

Taxon_List:                 244
Taxon:                  306,251
Taxon_Version:    312,291
Taxon_List_Item: 601,450
Organism:            119,626

With Dictionary Version 004O:

Taxon_List:                 244
Taxon:                  306,525
Taxon_Version:    312,565
Taxon_List_Item: 601,760
Organism:            119,110

Do these numbers look ok?
From what I know, we have always had to correct some taxon names that did not match on R6.


All the best,

Hi

Sorry to say your dictionary was out of step before you ran 000004L. Probably goes back years and may have only shown up as a few missing species  or unexpected  results. It will be OK to continue to use R6. The only  solution is covered at   http://www.recorder6.info/page56.html   However, if this is inconvenient then we can reset R6 so that it will process subsequent dictionary updates, still leaving your dictionary out of step.

Hi Mike,

I think it would be best for us to sort this.

I will get back to you once we finalise this year's budgeting to see if we could request your help.

Thanks, will be in touch.

Hi

If it a problem to you paying the £40.00  then I will do it for no charge. I am not receiving anything for R6 support these days and  the £40.00 just helps towards overheads, but it would be better if you were updated asap. I will need your database though, in accordance with the instructions.
