How to Prepare: Users with Unlikely Birth Dates


Our "How to Prepare" selection this week is a quick project, but will still help with data cleanup! The Users with Unlikely Birth Dates report provides a list of user records with birth dates that are the same as or after their card registration date. Some records on the report may be in-house use or staff cards, but others may be the result of a typo. Fixing incorrect birth dates will result in greater accuracy when running any kind of statistical reports by age group!

To access this report, log in to BCA. On your homepage, select Shared Reports.

In Shared Reports, select the Library Dropbox folder.

Choose the Database Cleanup - Users, Holds folder to view the reports.
