ADA codes

When our ADA codes were updated for 2018, the descriptors for the codes all reverted to the defaults. Is there a way to recover all of the descriptors we use without retyping the whole list? That's what I did last year and it took forever!

Re: ADA codes

hey cindy , as far as i know there is no way to keep the old ( edited ) ADA codes untouched when adding the new ADA codes using the 2018 utility 
we can definitely restore the old ADA file from a backup before running it and then enter the new codes and changes manually , both cases has some manual data editing or entry
