Entering and Querying Data

You may enter data into a field in a variety of ways, depending on the definition of the field. Some fields allow you to enter data freely, while other fields have constraints on the type of data allowed on the type of data allowed. It is important to note that entering and querying data are grouped together in this manual because ENTERING data should not be done without first querying (searching) the data base to make sure that the information that you’re about enter isn’t already there.
