Setting data validation

Once you have created your database, you can define the data validation attributes for your database fields in the Data Entry Attributes dialog box. Data validation attributes are settings that define how data is entered in fields within the Edit view.

For example, you can define a field that only allows upper case letters for field values or you can make a field read only. You can also define the parameters for authority lists, which are field value lists. Your  data validation selections are stored in the database's [database name].ini file.

For more information about authority lists, see Creating word lists.
