    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi

For the Admins ( CT in particular), I copy and paste the info here into Excel to use on my computer when I have no internet.
I make corrections in the file when I find them, ....I have lots of corrections.
Can I send my excel file to the admins in anyway so they can update (I have corrections in red) or is this not practical?

Thank you

No, it really isn't practical; however, just like you copy/paste, you can do the reverse. The problem is two-fold, there is no way to actually attach a file to a submission (this assumes the DB Admin has Excel) and in any case all of the tools we have at our disposal for working with the DB are text-based. So, if you can copy/paste your sheet (or I should say portions of your sheet) into the submissions text box, it gets to the DB Admin in more or less the form needed to import into the DB.
