Event Categories: HELP
Ladies and Gents,
I am reconcilled that I am going to have to create a custom script to add events to the database. Reason: existing data in other databases to be used to "format" both the Subject and the contents of the to-be-added event (think of a school calendar where each of the classes, prereqs, teachers, etc. are in databases and you want to write some of this information into a scheduled class.
The Problem: Decoding the character string that represents a Category.
So here is what I am needing. Help would be appreciated:
- Where do I find -- or how do I find -- the characterstring (or transformation rule) for a specific Event. Because Category types do not appear to be stored in a database I surely would like to know how to confirm the text string stored in the database = the category that was added. How?
- Helpful hints from those that have found it necessary to create custom ADD EVENT scripts and have solved this problem.
- How have those that created custom ADD EVENT scripts dealt with subsequent change to the event list or the description of the event (other than tightly controlled Administrator procedures)
BTW, I really like the tool Very, very nice.
