GEIGER QUERY PROCEDURES
Database JGDBFULL Query Set
PROCEDURE 3: MMTFIDSYMBOLS
The query returns a list of abbreviations and descriptions that categorize the roles of individuals or institutions in connection with the Taliesin Fellowship, the Taliesin Fellows and subscribers to the Journal of the Taliesin Fellows (JTF), and other relationships within the extended Frank Lloyd Wright community.
Note: The column labels shown within the query structures are historical references only, and do not reflect the definitions used within the version of the database being served through the website.
Procedure MMTFIDSYMBOLS calls on Table MMTFID to produce a reference list of abbreviations and descriptors to categorize individuals or organizations in Colums [ID CODE 1] and [ID CODE 2] of Table MMTFNL. The codes are often concatenated. Geiger evolved this system of classification to enable complex distinctions to be made in including or excluding individuals in numerous query procedures.
