Value Required - Borehole Name Must Have a Value

Recommended Posts

If you use the Edit | New Borehole menu option to manually add a new boring to the current project database, it's important that you first fill in all of the required fields - Name, Easting, Northing, Z (Elevation), Collar Elevation, and TD - in the Location table's Collar Coordinates tab. Even if you don't know some of these, such as Easting and Northing, you have to enter something into these fields, such as 0.

Then, once the borehole record has been created and added to the database (you might even have to click away and click back to the record) THEN you can click on the Other Coords tab to enter known coordinates (e.g. lon/lat). At that time you can use the To Easting/Northing button to compute the Easting and Northing coordinates. Or you can do this in bulk via the Edit | Coordinate Converter (To Easting/Northing) menu option.

If you try to enter the Other Coords data and compute Eastings and Northings without having first created the borehole record in the database, you will see the error, "Value Required - Borehole Name Must Have a Value".

Could RW immediately create a BH even with default values (e.g. -1) after entering a name only? To avoid the necessity of filling in fake numbers and clicking away and back?

Thanks.

Hi Julia,

Good idea - we have requested this. It will need to use "0" values since there are other tools in the program which use 0's to identify Eastings and Northings which have not yet been calculated.
