To find the contact details for your friends, the latest version of the members database to 10 December 2020 is available to download - please click here.
NOTE: following download you will have to open the file either by clicking on the image showing it in the bottom corner of your screen, which will look something like this (red arrow indicates where to look:
or by going to your Downloads to open it from there.
Please note that this database is in an Excel spreadsheet. If you are not familiar with this format, basic notes follow below, with detailed guidance, including screenshots in this PDF.
Open the Excel document and ‘save’ it to your device. (Depending on what type of device you have (PC, Laptop, Tablet etc.) and what software you use (Windows, Mac, OpenOffice etc.), you may first need to ‘Enable Editing’.) You can then do anything you want with it – it has become your sheet. The most commonly wanted functions are:
(a) You want to check your own entry.
You can either scroll down to see your name (the sheet is sorted by ‘name at school, with staff at the bottom) or you can search for your name (see (b))
Once you have found your entry if there are any errors, email us ASAP - Get in Touch
The online database is corrected every three months; our master copy is amended immediately.
(b) You want to find a particular person, let’s say ‘Penny Harrison’
Press Ctrl + F. A search box will open and you can type in either ‘Penny’ or ‘Harrison’ and ‘find next’ Each place in the sheet where the name occurs will be shown to you as you press the ‘enter’ key to move through them.
(c) You want to find everyone who lives in your postcode/your county/your country.
You can do this EITHER by adding ‘filters’ to the sheet by highlighting the whole sheet and pressing ‘sort/filter’ and adding the filter function, then filtering the column you want to look through OR by “sorting” the whole sheet by using the ‘custom sort’ facility.
If you have any questions or need further assistance please Get in Touch and we will endeavour to help.
