Data Integrity Manual

Things to remember:

  • The pound sign (#) is NOT to be used in any data field. It is a formatting command.
  • Punctuation is not to be used in any data field, except prefix and suffix fields.
  • All data entered into a data field should be typed using title case (uppercase and lowercase letters) using standard capitalization rules. Never use all uppercase or all lowercase letters.
  • Abbreviations are often used when entering data. If you are in doubt about an abbreviation, spell the word out rather than abbreviate.
  • Never make a change to an employee/student/vendor record without referring to changes.htm
