I have run into single index cards on an image. I called the 800 number and was told that we are to index the card in the 01 spot. For the 02 spot we are to call the image "normal" but put blanks in the required info spots.

Q:  I have an image that shows one history and one ledger. The next image shows the opposite side for both. I cannot mark only one record as "no extractable data" because the indexing program automatically assumes that the entire image is "no extractable data" instead of the record. How shall I index the half-image that has no extractable data, as blank?

A: The instructions direct us to mark the image as "normal", then mark the ledger record as "blank". Index the history record as per field helps.

Q:  What happened to the slide show presentation?  I can not find it now.

Q: How do I index Charge Dummy Cards?

You don't index Charge Dummy Cards.  Enter Normal and then blank remaining columns (ctrl B)

Q: Army Widow card gives widow's name as Smith Joyce.  Beside it is Former Widow.  Soldier's name is George Jones.  Do we index her surname as Jones Smith?
