currently seeking additional volunteers to help in the process of data
entry for the ALD. The requirements for this "job" include possession
of Excel 97 or earlier versions of Excel, Lotus 1-2-3 or Quattro Pro
software, familiarity with cut & paste, drag & drop, fill, and sort functions."
It should be pointed out that it is also possible to enter the data
into a regular data base program (e.g., Microsoft Access), flat-file or
relational, and then export the resulting data base as a *.csv
(comma-delimited, text) file. This can be read into their EXCEL
program by the LitvakSIG staff who is developing ALD. So, for those
not having or wanting to use spreadsheets like EXCEL, there is an alternative.
