Forgive me, Thomas, but this situation makes no sense to me. If the IT
department is using anything remotely like typical SQL software, the entire
database could be updated with a single SQL command, at least with regard to
DYS452. Here is how simple the SQL command would be:
UPDATE database SET DYS452 = DYS452 + 19 WHERE DYS452 < 24 and DYS452 > 0
And all you have to do to prevent people from entering DYS452 "low" at Ysearch
is to remove numbers below 24 from the drop-down list on the data entry form.
How can *three years* pass without something this simple being done?
Yes, DYS463 would be a tougher proposition, but at least DYS452 could be fixed.
