Just thought I'd say HI to everyone as I haven't seen this thread for a while. Hope the 'transcribbling' is going well! Ann - I haven't come across that yet. Please let us know the outcome. Jo - Good thinking. Wish I'd thought of that! lol When I was doing a bit yesterday I came across a young servant girl who gave her birthplace as Yorkshire, Dog Kennel! Made me feel quite sad. And while I'm here, my enumerator has devloped 2 very annoying habits. The fist one is that he puts the street name for the 1st house in the street then the ones that follow have no address. I've just been putting a hyphen in column G then a note in column Y. Also he hasn't been putting a marital status in for people under the age of 16. Again I've put a hyphen and a note in column Y. What would you do? Jeanette

Hi Jo et al Just had a reply form Carol and she said to put the letter u in the h column ie putting it down as uninhabited property. Yes Jo we had a lovely time it's a beautiful country Ann,Darlington

Hope you had a nice time in Italy Ann. When I'm not sure and need to ask I write down the number from the excel sheet and carry on. If I need to change it I can soon find it by the number. Well thats what I do but there might be better ideas.

Hi Jo Thanks that's what I thought but wondered if any one had come across it as didn't want to carry on to have to do it all again. Yes I'm well just been to Italy it was hectic but great! Hope you are well and not too busy Ann,Dalington

Got them! Hyphen was what I was looking for! I would think put a hyphen in each cell and x next to them and in Y write what the problem is.


Unknown Report 20 May 2004 20:09

Hi Ann, are you well? I haven't come across it but may be it was an empty house. I would have thought just putting , oh cant think of hand!, in the boxes and then in the the last column whats missing! If that makes sense! Will get my things out and have a look!

Rick Report 14 May 2004 13:11

Hi Susie ! Glad to hear things are going OK. How many pages are you up to now ? I'm on page 7 and the end seems a long, long way away ! You need to ask your coordinator how she wants your final file sent. They don't all say the same thing. Rick.

Rick Report 12 May 2004 13:03

Well the coordinator was a bit headmistress-like, but I've now had it checked, corrected my original and done another page. Everyone else getting on OK ? Rick.


Unknown Report 10 May 2004 15:32
