How do I import details directly from my HR5 Reader?
Stockbook can import details from a file that has been created from a data collector, such as the Gallagher HR5 Hand Held EID Tag Reader & Data Collector.

Step 3 -

Step 5 -
Step 6 -
In Step 2. Select the type/formate/lyout of this file ...
Step 7 -
In Step 3. Set your import options ...:
Here you need to add information that will be relevant for every field imported, for example if the file you are importing contains weight or trait data, it is recommended that you set a default Obs. Code (this represents a stage of growth of the animal/s, e.g. birth, weaning), so that all records will have the same codes unless otherwise specified.
Each of the tabs (eg.
General, Life Data, Induction, EBV, etc.) will have information pertaining to the heading of the tab.
As a part of Step 3 on the import you will have to set your import options; to do this you will have to go through the tab headings that are relevant for the file you are bringing in.
This tab is also used to set the Date Format and Add New Tags for new animals being imported onto a user list.
NOTE: It is recommended that if you are importing weight or trait data that you include an observation code (Obs.Code) so that all records will have the same codes unless otherwise specified.
NOTE: If the Add New Tags box is not ticked and the animal being imported is not on file, then an error will be generated and the new tags will not be added to your Stockbook.
NOTE: You can also add the Tag Prefix, if the data file you are bringing in doesn't have the correct prefix.
In Step 4. Match the fields ...
NOTE: You do not have to import all the fields contained in the Source Name column or CSV File Heading.
Here is an example of a CSV import and how to link some of the fields:
Select the Data Type from the drop down list. This example shows Primary Id being linked to Life Data.
Note: If the Stockbook Field does not show the correct link, you may have selected the incorrect Data Type.
This will save all the linked fields for the next time you import data. Once the layout has been saved, the layout will be found under Step 2. Select the type/format/layout of this file... .
