Overcoming security blocks with the Access database

See Upgrading when transferring personal ascent records between Excel or csv versions, including records from the former P30 Appendix. Users of the Access version should use the inbuilt facility to import logs from previous versions in Access or Excel. There is also a facility for importing/exporting records to and from

You can use the Access versions even if you do not have Microscoft Access. Download the free Access 2007 runtime, Access 2010 runtime or Access 2013 runtime from the Microsoft website after checking that your version of Windows meets the requirements. Do not install a runtime version of Access if you already have a full version of Access on your computer.

GPS users - can you help?
Our objective is to present a 10-figure grid reference based on site measurements for the true summit of every hill in the database. If you would like to help, please read our requirements in the Database notes. Our interest is not limited to hills for which we lack a figure, as multiple measurements improve the accuracy and reliability of the data.
Survey fund
In response to a number of requests, we have provided this PayPal facility for those wishing to contribute towards the development of the database. At present all the fund goes towards purchasing and operating our survey equipment, whose costs are considerable. Please email if you would prefer to contribute by cheque. A brief summary of our equipment and surveying objectives is given in the Database Notes.

Recent donations have gone towards purchase of a Leica Viva GS15 receiver to replace our ageing Leica 530. One of the Leica 530's circuit boards, which supply power from the batteries to the unit, had failed and consequently the instrument's lifetime was limited. The GS15 is the latest model in Leica's range and has the bonus of weighing only 1.5kg.

Hills Database user surveys
Dec 2010 user survey (pdf)

July 2008 user survey (pdf)

As we aim to provide lists and features people want, we place considerable value on the feedback we receive from users. Version 12 reflected to a large extent the views expressed in the 2010 survey. We plan to run another survey soon.
