Second Site supports two special directives you can use in the Comment field of the DNA test result, Kit and ShowName.
Prior to version 7.04, TMG did not include a way to record the Kit Number associated with a test result. If you are using an older version of TMG, you can add the Kit directive to the Comment field of the test result. Enclose the directive in TMG's [HID:] and [:HID] codes, as shown below:
When entered using the Kit directive, the kit number can not contain spaces or commas. It can be any reasonable length, though extremely long kit numbers will not produce an attractive result in the DNA Overlay Chart or DNA Grid User Item output.
When reading a TMG project that includes the Kit Number field, Second Site will process the Kit directive if the Kit Number field is empty. This is intended as a convenience for users who are upgrading from TMG v7.03 (or previous); there is no rush to move the data from the Kit directive to the Kit Number field, though I do recommend that you do so.
By default, Second Site does not display the names associated with test results. When you want to show the name for a particular test, you can add the ShowName directive to the Comment field of the test result. Enclose the directive in TMG's [HID:] and [:HID] codes, as shown below:
Data Entry Notes
You can specify both directives in the Comment field. Separate them with a comma as shown below.
Do not add spaces between the name of the directive, the equal sign, and the value. Specifying "Kit = 123" or "Kit= 123" will not work; you must enter the directive as "Kit=123".
