Global Database

The Global Database is a list of dancers and preferences maintained at

The Global Database only contains the dancer's first name, last name, country, state, role, preferred role, ok with single, partner ID, and a level tag (i.e., Plus, A1, etc.). The database does not contain any personal information such as address, phone number, etc.

Each dancer in the Global Database has a unique Global ID, so that their same barcode can used on any SQROT program onto which the Global Database has been downloaded.

The Global Database can be accessed from the Main Window via menu option 'File | Global Database'.

Data from the Global Database can be copied into the Dancer Table via the Dancer Table window by menu option 'Global Database | Add Dancers from Global Database to Dancer Table'. Dancers can then be added from the Dancer Table to any current rotation.

Only the database administrator can make changes to the Global Database. The Global Database currently contains data for AACE attendees, SoCal dancers, TEXPACC dancers, and attendees from dances organized on by Debbie.

How to Request Changes to the Global Database:

Request changes to the Global Database as follows:
  1. Open the Dancer Table window
  2. Select the dancers to update (i.e., highlight the dancers in the grid)
  3. Select menu option 'Global Database | Upload Selected Dancer(s) to Global Database'.

Data is uploaded to and a message is sent to Vic to process the data.

After the data has been processed (it may take a couple of days), update your database as follows:
  1. Open the Global Database (from main window, select 'File | Global Database')
  2. Select menu option 'File | Update from Web'
  3. Select menu option 'File | Local IDs to Global IDs'.
