  5. Back up your Legacy database.

Choose whether you wish to Fill all Individual User IDs with RIN + optional text, Only fill blank Individual User IDs with RIN + optional text, Fill all Individual User IDs with Sorted Birth Date, or Clear all Individual User IDs. The default is Fill all Individual User IDs with RIN + optional text.

Enter any optional text that you wish to add to RINs. The substitution string {RIN}, including the curly braces, is used to specify where in the Text to place the RIN. For example, if you enter "SMITH ({RIN})" in the Text field, _LTools_ will generate an individual _User ID_ that looks like "SMITH (1234)". If you enter a string in the Text field that does not contain {RIN}, all individual _User ID_s will be populated with that exact string ... in other words a constant. If you leave the optional Text blank, _LTools_ will behave as if you entered "{RIN}".

Check this box if you wish to pad the RIN that is inserted in the individual _User ID_ with leading zeroes. _LTools_ will pad all RINs with zeroes so that they equal the length of the longest RIN in the database.
