Merging Fiber Records - LinkWare

The Fiber Record Merge utility lets you merge fiber records with the same IDs, but different types of tests. For example, you can merge DTX loss/length records with OptiFiber OTDR records. You will need the latest version of LinkWare Stats to do this.
 
A fiber record can contain the following: 
  • Two OTDR tests (from End 1 and End 2)
  • One Loss/Length certificate
  • One ChannelMap result
  • Two FiberInspector images (from End 1 and End 2)
  • Two power meter results (from End 1 and End 2)

To merge fiber records 
Move the records to be merged into the same project in LinkWare. You can create a new project by placing your mouse over All Tests, and right click as shown here. 

  • The records to be merged must have the same cable IDs.
  • To edit cable IDs, right-click on a record; then select Report Properties.

Select Utilities > Fiber Record Merge. LinkWare displays a message if there are no mergeable records in the list.  

Select the records you want to merge; then click OK. Merged records appear in the record list with (M) following their cable IDs. The original records remain in the list. You may delete them if desired.
