Thanks Mike - seems to have run successfully - only difference in figures is Taxon = 321,248 (two down as with previous dict upgrade)

Yes, thanks Mike. All installed but as before still getting the discrepancy with Taxon which is the same (327325) as the Taxon_Version result. These two figures were the same with the 00000053 upgrade and that didn't have any noticable effect or issues.


Re: Recorder 6 - Dictionary Upgrade 00000054

Hi Mike,
that sounds good, that it should now be possible to run the dictionary update without IT support. We are county council hosted and have to ask our IT for many things.
Our Recorder 6 is on and the dictionary is on 00000053. I'm system manager in Recorder, but not on SQL Server.
I don't see the menu Tools/Database tools/Update Dictionary. I only see 'Tools/Database tools/View or Change Backup Location'.
But when I click on that, I get the message:
"Can't find backup device NBNdata_backup"
What am I doing wrong?
