    Import Solar Fire Chart failure


    The cause of the failure is usually that the name of the town/village/city cannot be found in the lat and long AstroConnexions database. This is usually a spelling difference:

    eg Weston-SUPER-Mare – not available in the database

    Weston super Mare – not available in the database

    Weston-Super-Mare – available


    Viewing your imported Charts

    To list the charts that you have imported dismiss Import Solar Fire Files and depending where they were saved tap the relevant List Charts, eg List Provided Charts



    Because the export routine in Solar Fire does not allow the following values to be exported, they are given these default values:

    Category = “Personal”

    House System = “Placidus”

    Rodden Rating = “Imported w/o rating”     (Imported without rating)
