In addition, early version of BCM supported automatic download of California Donor Deferral Register. That time it was delivering to the licensed Centers from USA FDA on the floppy disks twice a week. Information there were stored in the text files, where each string represented readable information about rejected donor in the way like:
- Last Name
- First Name
- SS#, etc
So, BCM job was to read diskettes and update interior database. Next figure shows the dialog, when diskette with CA-DDR Update selected. In case of Master List download, the BCM job was a little bit complex, because that list delivered on about 10 zipped floppy. But for user it was same routine procedure – just insert the next floppy disk when asked.
