Flagging and Retrieving Values From Modified Parcels

One of the most common operations performed with the Univers program is the

updating of parcels which have had a change of assessment made to them

within the current tax period.  Usually, you must then extract the values from

those parcels after they have been re-valued by calculation.  Rather than

exporting all of the values from the database, there are times when it is desired

to export only the values from certain specific parcels, in this case, those which

have changed in value due to a change in the parcel data, by way of additions or

deletions as the case may be.

One way to do this is to set up a SelFil to search for parcels which have had

changes made to them by checking the value of the  LAST UPDATE  factor,

which is located at  CARD ONE, ITEM 25.   If your database sits unaltered until a

certain time of the year, when new information is added to all of the relevant

parcels at the same time, then this is the way to go.  Follow the instructions in the

section labeled SORTING BY LAST UPDATE.

If new information is added constantly throughout the year, as it comes in, then

the best way to retrieve these records all at once later on, is by “flagging” them;

placing a specific character or characters into a designated field, then searching

for those flags to retrieve the altered records in a batch.  You may want to skip

the next section and follow the instructions in the section labeled SORTING BY


Start the UNIVERS program by clicking on its icon.  When the MAIN MENU

screen comes up, click on the button labeled SelFil Maintenance as shown below.
