I have just tried to submit 22 names dated 1804 but from a batch "Bishop transcript 1583-1754. the.
Do you have a Shared batch code for this? We can more accurately help you if we have the code.
- Just above the toolbar, click Help.
- On the drop-down menu, click Share Batch.
- The Share Batch window opens, giving you two options:
- Copy the batch link, and paste it in an email to the helper or post it on the Share Batch, Etc. page on Facebook. The helper can click the link and go directly to the batch.
- Share the batch code so the helper can enter it in the web indexing tool and open the batch.
- A second way to find the batch code is by clicking Batch, then About Batch. The Batch ID is the same as the code.
Reply to my unfinished question. Half of my question did not get posted.
So yes I tried to submit the names from this batch. On the screen a notice has appeared saying, "baptism year - This field requires a maximum value of 1754.
How do I submit this batch.? I have been told by a fellow indexer to go through this submission substituting ,"blank", for 1804.

I am going to guess that you are working on UK, England, Herefordshire—Bishop's Transcripts, 1583–1754 [Part A] because you mentioned the field will not accept a date after 1754.
The problem with your batch is that it is an image with the year 1804. The project instructions for this project under What to Index, in the Third Bullet Point say:
- Do not index records from later than 1754. These records have already been indexed in a previous project. Images that do not contain a name or that were from a date later than 1754 should be marked in Step 1: Images as No, No Extractable Data.
So, you should not have indexed the names, but, in Step 1 should have marked the batch No, No Extractable Data. To go back and do this, Click on Step 2: Entries and toggle back to Step 1: Entries. Choose No, No Extractable Data. It will then make sure you want to delete the indexed data, which you do.
If you do not think this is the answer to your question, please share the batch code for a more accurate answer.0
Yes you guessed correctly. Thank you. Sorry I just go into automatic mode and would not consider an out-of- the -date -stated batch page to be indexed.
This was still a good learning experience for me and having a clear explanation from one who knows is always a welcome outcome. So thank you again.
