Description

ver__beta_4.1

I received errors when importing my species list to the table
z_USER_B_SpecList, telling me that the number of characters in my species names
fields was longer that the number allotted in VegBranch. The following error
message is an example:

Line 42: Field: plantSyn1 is a text field of length 50, but your value is

longer: 57, "Antennaria luzuloides Torr. & Gray var. argentea (Benth.)"

This could also happen in the plantName and other fields, since an entire plant
name might include an author, subspecies, and variety, along with a long genus
and species name containing as many as 100 characters (one of mine was 92), the
number of characters per field should be increased to perhaps > 120 (?) just to
be safe.

changes.
