|Title: Import ASCII Locks Up SurvCe|
This is in regards to importing ASCII files where there is Large Point gaps between existing point numbers and the new point numbers. If you are using SurvCE and importing an ASCII file with say points numbers # 100 to 120 into an existing CRD coordinate file that has Point numbers starting out at 5,000 or 10,000 this can cause Large Import times up to 5 or 10 minutes or longer and in some cases may even lock up the data Collector. One way to help speed this up is to create CRD coordinate files in an Alphanumeric Format. To check the format of your CRD file, go into the Cogo tab / Keyboard Input = the format of the CRD file you have open will be displayed. If it says Type CRD: Numeric then you can follow the steps below to convert this to an Alphanumeric format.
