To perform database searching within the individual databases use the left or right part of the 'TRANSFER SPECIES' window for source and target database (DB), respectively.
The database is scanned for 'species' (see ´Glossary´
) which contain (or do not contain) the search string within the specified 'field' (see ´Glossary´
). The corresponding 'species' and the respective 'field' entries are listed in the 'HIT LIST' subwindow. The number of hits is displayed after the 'Hits:' prompt.
Define whether matching or non matching species should be listed by pressing the appropriate combination of left and right buttons in the 'QUERY TYPE' area. Performing multiple searches, define whether the list of 'species' should be replaced by the new results, whether newly found 'species' should be removed from or appended to the existing list.
Select a 'field' from the 'Fields' subwindow.
Type the search string to the 'Search string' subwindow.
Press the 'RUN QUERY' button of the results area.
Transfer will always happen from source to target species (i.e. from left to right side).
Select the transfer mode:
Select the transfer scope:
"selected species" will copy (from) the selected species into a new species or to the species selected in the right-side hitlist.
"listed species" will copy all species listed in the left-side hitlist.
Click the 'Transfer species' button in the window center to transfer according to selected transfer-type and -scope.
