The Virginia HorseAllow Access
This page allows another user to have access to add, modify, or delete information about a particular horse or person or business.
Usually, only the user who originally enters the horse or person or business will be able to modify or delete the information. If the
two users feel comfortable exchanging user ids and passwords, then the primary user can use this screen. If either person does not feel
comfortable having someone else know their user id and password, then the primary user should use Contact Us to email the request to
the website administrator.

checks for POSSIBLE DUPLICATES of horses, people, and businesses. If any are found, the id number and name are indicated in order
to facilitate correction. The system tries to not allow duplicates but the user can accidentally over ride the attempt and create
a duplicate. The administrator should check with the user and eliminate the duplicate if required.

and the link should either be eliminated or changed to the correct location of the photograph.

Loading Groups of Horses
If you are not computer literate, do NOT attempt
to load groups of horses. Talk to me (P.R. Greenwood) FIRST!!
In order to load a group of horses whose data is separated by commas (a .CSV file), first create the CSV file and name it 'excel.csv'. You
can do this by entering EXCEL and then saving the spread sheet as a .CSV file. The template programs to load and CHECK the data are in the
folder LOAD_GROUPS on the hard drive - NOT on the website. Once the layout in the .CSV file is consistent with the programs regarding what
data is to be loaded, then FTP everything to the website and run the programs. Once everything has run, it is
CRITICAL to delete the programs and data from the website.
