The UDF Database Editing Module:

  • Allows you to edit and display UDF information and inspection data for hydrants, valves, and pipes in a spreadsheet-like format.

  • It makes it easy to sort and group edit data.

  • It also makes it easy to search, locate, and zoom to UDF elements.

The Data Editing Module has the same functionality for Hydrant, Valve, and Pipe editing. All functions are the same but column headings will change based on the type of data. Any data field except the ID may be edited individually, by using the block editing tools or by copy and paste functions. The Inspection Tab lists inspection data, if available, from the UDF database.
