Continuous Drier Records

Field Track allows you to store continuous drier information, which is not that easy to store within the Harvest Records. Records allow a combination of recording levels to maintain true averages. For example, you can store wet grain information in your Harvest Records and only store the dry grain information in the continuous drier records. This will allow you to maintain correct grain store averages. Because both methods allow you to record the wet grain moisture you may biased the wet grain average when checking the state of a grain store. For example you enter a wet moisture in the Harvest Records for an inbound load of grain. If you then enter a wet moisture here for the drier records this will alter the average. You have to decide if this is what you wish to happen. Also worth noting is a wet moisture has probably a limited relation to the dry moisture reading at the time in relation to the drier. Averages are simple figures, in that the average is based on the number of figures entered and not the weights.
To display useful averages of 'work in operation' you can use the "Date Limiter" to limited the calculated records.

You can check the store averages of the record currently highlighted, as well export, or import records to/from a text file. This makes it easy to move records from drier to office. The assumption is made that both computers hold the same Field Track data, so field code references are the same. Export function exports all the currently viewed records. Import function appends records to the existing database. The import function is not an append/replace option. If the record already exists then it will be added again. It is advised that the receiving computer checks for drier records between the dates in the export file and deletes them before importing new records.

A good practise is to export today's drier records and import them directly to the office machine. You can also clear the "Date Limiter" and export all records and delete all records on the office machine and import all the records again.
