Hi, at our college, we are working on cleaning up the RE database Education records. One of the things I am trying to clean up is the major description. Example would be the orginal records loaded said Accounting, but we need to change them to Accounting Specialist or Accounting Cert. Is there a way to update the accounting record? So far, once i have loaded the new Major description, I have to go in and delete the Accounting record. Thanks, Rose
Because there are two new options for the accounting major, there isn't an easy way to delete the existing entry. It will have to be manually deleted.
Although, this is something that could very likely be accomplished by the IOM API during import. If you have a resource that can program in Visual Basic (vb.net) then they would be able to write this customization for you. If you do not have such a resource, we can provide this customization as a service.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
