Import Requirements

  • Worksheet mapping file has to be created by NSSC for each worksheet of each version of a workbook.

  • Currently have these for RaCA versions 2.07 thru 2.14, and new 2.15

  • DSP workbook being developed


RaCA import rules (& DSP)

  • For RaCA & DSP, the import process APPENDS to existing Site and Pedon records.

  • Corresponding Site, Site Assoc., & Pedon records MUST already be in NASIS.


RaCA import rules (& DSP)

  • These MUST be checked out for the spreadsheet to import.

  • User Site ID, User Pedon ID, Site Obs. Date, & horizon designation MUST agree between NASIS and spreadsheet.

  • Multiple spreadsheets can be imported at once.


Local Plant Issue

  • Plant symbols and names on the spreadsheets MUST already be in the Local Plants table in NASIS

  • Symbols and names MUST match EXACTLY!

  • Any mismatch will abort the import


VNIR Scan file import

  • VNIR scan filename MUST match that recorded on the spreadsheet

  • If file(s) are stored in same directory as the spreadsheet, they are automatically imported with the spreadsheet file


VNIR Scan file import

  • Files can also be imported from NASIS Pedon Horizon VNIR Scan table

  • Click in VNIR File Name column

  • Click Open button

  • Browse for desired file


VNIR Scan file import


Run National Reports Offline
