Creating New Groups in the ESHA Database

By in ,

Using Groups is an efficient way to organize your data and records. The ESHA database comes pre-populated with a list of common food groups and characteristics you can associate your records with. In addition, you can add your own Groups to the ESHA Database to help facilitate organization and ease of searching.

Check out our blog post Using Groups for Organization, Exporting, and Access Control for ideas on how you can use Groups!

Here’s how:

  1. On the Database ribbon, click Modify.
    Nutrition Database Software
  2. Select the Groups tab.groups
  3. Click
  4. Select the Group radio button (or to create a folder containing a set of Groups, create the folder first).
  5. Type in the name. In this example, I’ll use “samples”.
  6. Click OK.

The user-added Groups will appear in blue to differentiate them from the included Groups. You will now be able to attach any Ingredients or Recipes to this Group.
