Hi all,
As discussed on Friday here is our first go at updating a staging table with 
NWAU flag and adjustment fields. The definitions seem to be a slowly moving 
target so I'm sure they will need refining.  Please let me know if you find 
anything blatantly wrong; we have validated it against SAS code we got from DoH 
and it was pretty close which is all I ever hope for when comparing our live 
data to VAED.  The key seems to be to add or multiply the adjustments in the 
correct order.

Hope it helps someone anyway.
