If you attempt to publish a Data Entry Form template from another IMSMA installation, you may be required to reconcile the CDFs in the Data Entry Form template to CDFs that are defined in IMSMA. Reconciliation is necessary to ensure that the data is associated with the correct CDF.

If you attempt to publish a Data Entry Form template that contains CDFs which have been defined outside of your IMSMA installation, the Reconcile CDFs window displays with a message stating, This form contains CDFs which are not in your database. Please reconcile the following CDFs before publishing:

      New 6.0.png The rules for CDF name has changed to: The name should be no longer than 60 characters and should not contain periods (.), underscores (_), or capital letters. In addition it cannot start with a digit.
    2. Click the Save button to add the CDF and to reconcile it with the CDF in the Data Entry Form template.
    Note.jpg When reconciling CDFs of the data type single-selection or multiple-selection, the CDF to which you are resolving to must contain the values specified in the Data Entry Form template CDF. If any values are missing the addition of the values should be done in the Data Inventory Manager since the CDF already exists.

  4. Repeat steps above for each CDF.
  5. After you have reconciled all CDFs in the Data Entry Form template, the OK button in the lower, right corner of the Reconcile CDF window becomes active.
  6. Click the OK button.
  7. The Data Entry Form is published.
