Word Lists

In most document databases, some data entry work is unique (such as attorney review comments), but much of it is repetitive. Having these repetitive words available in word lists allows you to insert them easily into database fields, reducing data entry errors. For example, you can pick Schenectady from a list instead of having to remember how to spell it each time you need to enter it into a field.

You can use word lists by manually selecting the list when editing fields, but a better practice is to define a word list to use when validating entries in a specific field.  See Data Validation for more details.

Word lists are set up by your Concordance administrator. If you want a word list added to a particular field, contact your Concordance Administrator.

You can only open a word list when you are in the Edit view.
