Data Entry Access
How to access Data Entry, downloading the Data Entry program, and information about creating a Data Entry login name.
Crash Magic includes a desktop application providing data entry access to your crash data. This application provides validation lookups within a field, and a full expression based validations for any criteria you wish to setup for validation. This is also useful for editing your database, but please keep in mind if you are also importing data, you may overwrite any edits made from the data entry application during importing. Please contact Pd’ Programming if this is a possibility.
