Misleading Graphic
Figure 4-7 (Scope Creep)
This xkcd image is not demonstrating scope creep. The reason this image is funny is because the child swallowed a buzzer from the game 'operation', which is a kids game on surgery. This would be scope creep if the buzzer wasn't one of the original things that the surgeon was attempting to excise, but it is not scope creep since removing the 'operation' game buzzer is the point of the surgery.

also, on the left pages, the page number is on the right side. I think all of the pages should be numbered on the outside (left upper corner for left pages and right upper corner for right pages).

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
