Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Praesent nec massa tristique arcu ferme. [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Forest Description Formatting Rules" } [/block] Each worksheet within the forest description workbook has a header with column description information at Row 4. User definable column metadata is also entered in Row 4 as needed.

Column A is unused, and the forest description information always needs to start at Column B. This cannot be changed. Forest description data is entered in each column from Row 5 downward. This cannot be changed. Rows cannot be inserted before Row 4, and columns cannot be inserted before Column B.

The datatype for each column is fixed and needs to be adhered to in order to prevent error.

Multiple authors and copy/pasting worksheets within an Excel workbook can result in NULL values becoming present in the cells of the Excel workbook. Always start a new model with a new forest description template to minimize data error. Copy existing data to the new template as needed." } [/block]
