I'm having trouble with height inches (it doesn't like the 3/4 inch) and hair colour of Fair. The fields turn red so I'm assuming I'm doing something wrong.


Actually, could you check all fields to see if this is what you want. There's no template so I don't know if I'm doing it correctly.

Hi Maltesemaur - it all looks fine. I've added in 'Fair' to the hair choices. Don't worry about the '3/4' showing as red - it goes when it's saved :) Thanks for all your work


I can't correct the mistake in Entry 19, for Tommy (Aboriginal). "Fair, Black, Brown and Single" were put in in mistake and I haven't been able to remove them.


Please ignore my note above. I fixed the problem by deleting line 19 and then by re-installing it. Also, if you write the inches in decimal form, there is no problem.

Great, thanks!
