Renumber a record in FH
In FH, a number of record types have fields that lock once the initial record is created. These record types include incident, staff, occupancy, training programs, hydrants, inventory.
Example: In an incident record, the FDID, Alarm Date, Exposure, and Incident Number fields lock after the record is initially created. In a staff record, the Staff ID field lock after the staff record is created.
You can change the values in a number of locked fields by renumbering the record in FH.
- Open the record you want to renumber.
Choose Form → Renumber <record name>.
The name of the option changes, depending on the type of record you opened in the previous step.
Example: If you opened an incident record, the option is named Renumber NFIRS Incident Report. If you opened a staff record, the option is named Renumber Staff.
A dialog box listing the fields you can edit with the renumbering feature appears.
Note: The name and contents of the dialog box varies, depending on the type of record you opened.
Example: If you opened an incident record, the dialog box is named Renumber - NFIRS Incident Reports, and contains the FDID, Incident Number, Exposure, and Alarm Date fields. If you opened a staff record, the dialog box is named Renumber - Staff Members, and contains the Enter the new Staff ID value field.
- Edit the value in the field you need to change.
