As there are a couple of different military projects at the moment it would be good if you could post the batch code with the balance of your question. The code is at the end of your batch title ,XXXX-XXX , a group of numbers and letters. Just copy that and paste it with your question and someone should be able to help.
I'm having a similar problem. The military records I just input is asking for additional required information that is not included in the batch. As a result I've got 201 errors. US Missouri military records Roster of troops M9N2-QVG. The data is for one unit for one day and has no information on enlistment.
hi Pat Hornik, Millie Eriksson
I tried to open the batch and was told it was restricted. have you returned the batch or submitted it?
The project instructions say:
So if your batch does not have a header you can use the reference images to look back and find dates and other information. on your vertical tool bar click the bottom icon, looks like a book. You then can click on -1 and go to the previous page. some times you have to go back several pages to find the header.
Once you have all of the information in for all of the names on your batch make sure you delete any blank entries that you might have left over, use the rubbish bin on the top tool bar, and you should be able to submit your batch.
I was able to open the batch of @Pat Hornik.
The reason it will not submit is because you have to fill out all of the fields that have an asterisk. The enlistment month should be filled in using the date at the top of the muster roll - March 31, 1939. We know this because the field help gives us extra instructions. The field helps are accessed by clicking on the purple question mark that appears when you click on the field.
Enlistment Month (Field Help)
Type the first three letters of the enlistment month: Jan, Feb, Mar, and so on.
If multiple enlistment dates were given, type only the earliest one.
Many types of events may have been recorded. In the enlistment fields, type information only about the following events, according to this priority list. (If multiple events were mentioned, use the one highest in the priority list.)
Date of enlistment.
Date of events indicated by words such as "appointed," "mustered," or "inducted."
Date of discharge or retirement.
Date when a roll was taken or roster was created.
Date when the soldier or sailor was wounded.
If multiple dates were recorded and you cannot determine if a date refers to one of the events in the above priority list, type the earliest date. The earliest date is typically closest to the date of first enlistment.
If the month was not recorded or was written as a variation of the word "unknown," press Ctrl+B to mark this field blank.
You will find more instructions for things like the military unit where it says to add a comma between Company F,15th Infantry.
The Military Service Branch fields says if Army, Navy, Marines or Coast Guard is not on the image to mark it Not Given. I didn't see Army on the image, but, perhaps I missed it.
Also on the Enlistment Place, there are several options in the priority list which would allow you to index Fort Lewis, Washington.
Since you are going to be entering the same information on all of these, a quick tip is to enter the data on the first entry. Then go back and click on the field, then click the Copy Text to Matching Fields icon (6th from the right) and it will fill in every entry form with the same information. You can also remove information from the 1st entry, or enter <blank> using Ctrl + B, and use the tool to copy the empty field or the blank field forward. If you switch to column entry you will see it work in 1 second!
Happy Indexing! Hope this helps.
