Adjusting the Total Depth Fields
Borehole Manager | Edit | Adjust Total Depths

Use this Borehole Manager tool to scan all of the data for each borehole in the current project database, and adjust the Total Depth (Location table) for the borehole based on the deepest data values in any of the borehole's data tables. Because RockWorks uses the TD field to determine the base of data for each borehole, this tool assures that deeper data won't be ignored.

Feature Level: RockWorks Basic and higher

  1. Access the Borehole Manager as necessary.
  2. We recommend that you make a backup copy of the existing project database, using the File | Backup Database option.
  3. Enable the boreholes whose Total Depth fields you wish to modify. Any disabled boreholes will be exempted from this process.
  4. Select the Edit | Adjust Total Depths menu option.
  5. Establish the settings as described above.
  6. Click the Continue button to proceed.

    RockWorks will read the database and compare the TD for all active holes against the deepest data value entered into the tables. It will make adjustments as requested.

    If the scan process generated no TD adjustments, you'll be advised as such.

    If the scan process did generate TD adjustments, it will display a list of the borehole names and the adjustments that were made. The text list will be displayed in a Report window.

  7. You can save or print the report by clicking the Save or Print buttons above the data listing.
  8. Close the Options and Report windows using the Close button .
