"Apply Values to Collections" 

Select Tools > Apply Values to Collection(s)

The Apply Values dialog appears. 

  1. Select the collection* you want to use.
  2. Select "Set unfound values to 0.00"  (see below)
  3. Select "Overwrite user entered** values
  4. Click OK

Unfound Values - There is no grade specified (is that what it means?)

Overwrite user entered values - If you manually enter a value, it will not be overwritten.


* 'Value database' is an internal label not on the screen. If it's not on the screen you can't reference it.

** 'User specified' is a techie term, not user-friendly, and doesn't .

You need more information under "Create a New Collection" (title of index entry should be "Collections - Creating" so everything collection related is next to each other.  Same for things under the Tools menu. (but please don't add an entry for each line item, only for each separator group.)

Include when or why you might want to add a collection (not just the steps).   

1) To organize your collection by areas of interest,

2) To differentiate Value Databases  (not sure why you would, but 


You also need a Collections - Delete  index entry. When / Why you might want to.

Let people know that to remove things from the pull down menus all you have to do is go to the "View By" section; Select the high level item (sometimes you have to figure out where it is and what name it goes by) and then right click on the items in the list. Or, you can change the names to something that makes more sense. 

Of course, you should also let them know which values they can't change / add to without impacting important queries.
