As we saw in previous chapters, a data entry application contains a set of forms (screens) which a data entry operator uses to key data to a disk file. Data entry applications can be used to add new data to a file and to modify existing data. You can also include logic to perform consistency checks, generate complex skip patterns, look up information in one or more external files, and display messages after any field is entered. A number of statements and functions in the CSPro language set may be used only within data entry applications. They are generally related to the creation and/or modification of a case, and may require operator interaction.
You use the Forms Designer module of CSPro to develop the data entry application. You use CSEntry to run the data entry application, and use the CSPro language to develop validation procedures to be carried out at data entry time.
