Approve invalid categories

After uploading data there often remain invalid values. Each data column is validated against the data group it was assigned to, depending on its Data type. Each data group stores it's own controlled vocabulary, the Categories. If during validation there are categories detected, that are new to the data group, then these values are flagged as invalid and are presented to the user. You can then either correct the values or accept them as correct. These are the steps to follow when approving invalid categories: 1) follow the "approve data columns" link, 2) follow the link to the data column in question, 3) follow the link to the page for invalid values. On this page you can 4) type in the correct values online or download a .csv file to correct the values on your local machine.
