DDb User Manual

DDb User Manual

by AndyAmphlett » Sun May 25, 2014 12:13 pm

Hi,

draft guidelines for using the BSBI Distribution Database (DDb) can be downloaded from -

PLEASE download the revised guidelines via the link in the message below, dated 1st March 2015.

This is a Word file (8MB, 41 pages). It aims to provide sufficient information and examples of queries to allow effective use to be made of the DDb. It is far from comprehensive, and does not aim to be. But familiarity with its contents will equip users with the skills to construct many other queries, and when stuck, to ask for help via the message board. The DDb continues to be developed, and inevitably this guidance document will become dated as aspects of the DDb are modified or new functionality added. Hopefully this document will be updated at intervals.

Simplified permanent links to the User Manual are set up at

Hi,

I have updated the User Guidance document - (Version date 1st March 2015). This includes more information on what you can use the DDb for without a login; updates the Maps section, to reflect recent changes; and adds a few additional queries.

The updated document can be downloaded from -

[edit:] please use the link in the first post of thread

Hi

The Dropbox link to the user manual seems to be broken. Could you direct me to the manual.
