Re: Functionality of the Complete button in Data Entry


Hi Rae,

The data are saved regardless, but clicking the button allows you to
indicate that you are indeed done filling in data, even though it might
look as though some data are missing - because you actually have nothing to
report. This is also related to the question of whether to require people
to report zero  (0) - and whether that is significantly different from not
reporting anything (NULL).

Others can complete the picture.
