    Row numbers in database

    Are you able to make the row number column optional? We find it a bit distracting and it skews the results when trying to sort by date column.

    It is of little use to us, adds confusion to the database, and is bothersome.

    We would prefer to eliminate it altogether, but would be happy if it were made optional....

    Thanks very much for listening...

    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/209451-us-groups/suggestions/5537353-database-useless-row-numbers-need-to-be-able-to

    Database: Useless row numbers. Need to be able to adjust column widths.

    (Note: this is a revision of my earlier comment of today (“row numbers”) because as soon as I posted it, the database changed! I saw no way to delete that comment, which is now outdated.)

    Today there is a new editing procedure in the database. Each row has an edit icon (pencil) and a delete icon (trash can) to the left of the row. It makes editing a row easier. One can sort the way one likes, and then edit a row without having to scroll through the whole database to find the row. Good. An improvement. We thank you.

    The entries in the table are now very readable, without most of the awful line breaks in the middle of the words. Good again.

    But … there is a new left-most column called Row, with a unique number in the column for every row. What is the meaning of this? The rows are not numbered consecutively from 1 to n. They appear to start at 1 but, for reasons known only to Yahoo, some numbers are skipped. My table with 48 rows has the rows numbered from 1 to 86, with many numbers skipped (it goes 1, 15, 21, 24, ...). When I add a row, it says it is adding row 49 (good) but then labels it in the Row column as row 87 (strange). This apparently useless new Row column takes up valuable real estate, better used by the other data in the table.

    The columns are still one-size-fits-all, and too wide for most of my data. If I could adjust the column width as people have asked for earlier, my data would be more readable. I would have skinny columns for dates and wide columns for email addresses, which still have bad line breaks.

    Also, I am concerned about how close together the Edit and Delete icons are, 1/4" on my monitor. Yes, you ask for confirmation before deleting the row, but wouldn’t it be better to separate the icons more, say by putting one icon all the way to the left of the row, the other all the way to the right, for user-friendliness?

    Please allow the moderator to adjust column widths in the database, and either explain or get rid of the row numbers.

    Thank you for the additional default actions in the Edit Membership but one section does seem to have been missed - that of the Database - it is so niggling having to change the view each time we go in there - I prefer the slim view - is it possible to add this to the section in Membership please. It would actually have been better if we as owners could have the choice of default but hey this is better than nothing I suppose.

    I agree, we still have a lot of problems with viewing and using the databases !
    They are unusable as is ! We lose the line when going from left to right, and cannot follow the entire entry.
    The order is stupid (chronology is of no help).
    IT is impossible to order the database alphabetically because it immediately reverts to chronology,
    the alphabetical order should be the default order.

    We had the same problem with French accented characters éèàçù etc.
    Yahoo has fixed this, I thought they would be clever enough to fix it for ALL accented characters
    some people complained about similar situations with Spanish, Swedish etc.

    The databases dont work properly, we cannot add information, some columns show up, others dont show what was typed etc

    Database problems

    I used the Database now and when I first searched for a title to see if it was in the database and then put the new one it - it seemed like the new one overwrites the old one.
    I tried 3 times, and every time it overwrite one of the search result, but different each time -
    I tried one time finally without searching before adding a row, and then it went ok.

    I can add that I am not quite satisfied with the database - not how it works and how it sorts and I can´t understand the row with the number either - what is the point of this?

    And still many of the letters are not correctly - this is the norwegian letters æ ø å - some have been ok, but some are still a mess - have tried to correct it when I have found the errors.

    And finally - the Calendar are not working with foreign letters either.

    when clicking on one of the columns to obtain alphabeticaly order, this works, but as soon as you click on one entry, it reverts to the random order.
    so there is NO WAY to find the entry one is looking for !

    Also the lines are too long, so in order to read the right part of the line, you need to go ALL THE WAY DOWN (I have hundreds of lines, so of course during this I waste time and I lose my line), and then all the way up again, but since I can no longer see the first columns, I cannot find the entry I was looking at !

    This is SOOOO UNCONVENIENT and makes it impossible to even READ the DB

    Now this no longer works, all the data gets dispatched, each time you click the order gets random again.

    Adding to that, I still am not able to save changes and new input, only the data in the first 2 columns show, the rest vanishes....

    So there is a MAJOR problem: changes we try to input in the tables are NOT SAVED!
    so we still cannot edit TABLES !!!
    WHen is Yahoo going to fix this???

    Database problems persist

    I posted the following on Yahoo Answers and got a response to post it here:

    I am the owner and moderator of the Mearns Bird Club Yahoo group
    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Mear...

    We have 4 tables under Database. The first 3 of them have lists of birds in a certain order which is the taxonomic order of the American Ornithological Union.

    When I had created these tables, the only way I could keep them in the correct taxonomic order was to give them a Serial number. If I entered their names without the serial number the site would automatically reorder them alphabetically instead. This was before the Neo groups change.

    In the Neo-groups you have added a Row number before the Serial number which is totally unnecessary and irrelevant.

    Now when I tried to add a new species as I did with Snowy Owl, it automatically goes to Row 340.
    It should go right behind Great Horned Owl which has a serial number 136, so it should become 137, but instead of reordering the rest of the birds names following this row, I tried to used 136.1 instead. However there is no way to edit the row number so that Snowy Owl went to a new row, i.e. 340 at the end.

    Perhaps

    1. You can remove all the row numbers which do not serve any useful purpose since there is already a Serial number,

    or 2. Less usefully there should be a way to edit the row number as well, if it is important for you to keep the row numbers, when I click the edit icon.

    The change should involve the first 3 of the 4 tables in the Database on our site.

    Update 1: 3/21/14
    As a follow-up to my earlier question of Problems with Groups Database tables, I am the owner and moderator of the Mearns Bird Club Yahoo website:
    https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Mear...

    When you changed to the Neo-Groups, initially the columns of the tables in the Database were too narrow so that the words in each column leaked over to the second line with incomplete words on the first line. I made a suggestion which was acted on by you - and the columns a much wider now. However the columns are so wide that you can only see the first three columns and you have to scroll using a little arrow to go further to the right to see the remaining columns.

    In doing so, the title of the row, in our case the name of a specific bird in each row cannot be seen.

    You should adjust the table so that when we scroll to the right to the columns normally hidden, we can still see the name of the bird we are trying to read the information of.

    Thank you.

    another precise comment on database bugs is to be read here:

    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/209451-us-groups/suggestions/5697361-please-fix-the-database-functionality

    please fix the database functionality

    Here are a number of things the database feature does not do right:

    1. Importing from a CSV file *always* gives an error saying the format is incorrect, and then it doesn't import one or more columns, leaving them blank. I have double and triple checked my file to make sure the format is correct, and that it matches the format produced when exporting the database as a CSV.

    2. After editing a row, the display *always* returns to show row number 1 at the top, even if you had previously sorted by row number. That makes it very difficult to edit several adjacent rows that are not on the first page.

    3. The row numbers cause problems with data that is expected to be sorted in another manner. My table already has a date column that is the preferred sorting order. Please make the row numbering optional or add the ability to select which column is the primary sort key.

    4. When exporting a database, the name of an exported file cannot be changed (at least using Firefox on Mac OS) and does not include the .csv or .tsv extension.

    5. After changing the view from Relaxed to Slim or, the triangle that indicates the sort column and sort order is lost. Clicking on a column heading will still change the sort order, but the triangle does not reappear. Maybe it's just missing in Slim mode.

    So many people have posted comments on databases not working, even after "revamping"
    the system here is that you only answer to requests that get a high number of votes, so that simple users who just post a question and dont get their group members to vote on it, simply disappear.
    If you just look at the many complaints about databases posted AFTER you intervened on the databases, you, YAHOO people, would see how crippled they remain

    Les caractères et accents marchent maintenant dans les bases de données.
    dans les "liens", il faut corriger manuellement, mais ca marche.
    par contre on n'arrive pas à sauvegarder toutes les colonnes dans les bdd !

    I cannot even insert a new row: I can enter the information, then click "save"
    but only the info in the first two columns shows up, the rest has vanished!
    This after "revamping" (before revamping it was impossible to "save", now one can click on "save" but it saves only what is in the first two columns !

    I have been trying to add new entries into a database that has 9 columns
    After inserting and saving, only the data entered in column 1 and 2 show, the rest has disappeared !
    I am using Chrome.
    what is happening, why it is so difficult to have a DB that works?
    any changes just seem to make things worse !

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I have asked our members to try to insert a new row.
    the new row doesnt save!

    DATABASES DONT WORK !

    By the way, there still is a problem with the encoding, in the FILES and LINKS section.
    only in the databases do accented caracters appear normally
    In the LINKS section it is STILL A TOTAL MESS !!!!!!!!!

    more comments on the new databases after revampiing
    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/209451-us-groups/suggestions/5542037-databases-still-problems-after-revamping

    I appreciate yahoo trying to make the databases usable again

    Indeed there are many good things in the improvements and I appreciate you got us the French accented characters back again.

    However, the format is still difficult to read and use for following reasons:

    1/ column headings do not align with the actual columns as soon as you click on one of the columns to have it ordered. After reordering one column, column headings stay the same at the top but when you scroll down, column widths vary and no longer fit the headings!

    example: I try to sort out column number 3 according to zip code, all columns realign but not with the headings, one still cannot understand what each column is about

    2/ I dont understand the first column: these numbers are of no use at all, I used to have the first column for the name of the group member who put in the information, this is what I wanted first but now it is no longer! It takes space for no use.

    3/ I appreciate having more length for reading each column but this is far toooooo long now, you need to use the cursor to go very far to the right, while it used to be possible to read the whole table without using cursors.

    4/ In particular, to move the cursor to the right, you need to go ALL THE WAY down the database, even if it was the first entry you wanted to go and read towards the right! Now if you want to go back and read the second entry (out of 400 or so entries) you need to scroll back all the way to the top, and then when you want to go to the right to see what is in the 5th or 6th column,, you need to go ALL THE WAY down to get the cursor towards the RIGHT, you must be KIDDING ME ?

    Therefore, I much prefered having pages, rather than scroll down the entire list !

    5/ It would be nicer to have the entire page free to read the database and thus PLEASe could you get rid of the list of all the groups I own or am a member of, on the left of the screen, this is really totally unnneeded once I am in a group and even more when we are trying to read a database.

    Overall comment: you have really worked hard and I appreciate.
    HOWEVER, it is really still very difficult to use and far LESS convenient than it USED TO BE
