·         You must manually add a hip number, OR wipe out all of your hip numbers and import a corrected spreadsheet

§  If the session assigned to the horse in the program and the session to the horse on the Hip Number spreadsheet are different, the session listed on the Hip Number import spreadsheet will replace the session already assigned to the entry.

·         If the session is left blank on the Hip Number import spreadsheet, the session already assigned to the entry will be removed.

·         MAKE SURE the sessions match before importing Hip Numbers
