The original field spreadsheets ended with column W, where the history of each cavity's nests was given as a long coded character string. Column W is important because it contains the original biological data in a redundant code, and as uncaught errors in the SOURCE sheets are likely typos, correction is often possible. Column W is also useful because, once one learns to read it, one can often quickly explore with 'find', 'if' and 'countif' Excel formulas.
