    It is very important that you select the correct existing item. E.g. if you have received new information about the existing Victim Vic-125 (Jane Doe) or would like to correct some information about the existing Victim Vic-125, you must select the Victim item Vic-125 in the list. If you select another Victim item e.g. Vic-126 (James Smith), the information in the current Data Entry Form will replace or combine existing information about Vic-126.
  7. Click the Assign button.
  8. The Replace/Combine Item window displays.

Warning.jpg The updating Data Entry Form's Date of information must be a later date than the Data Entry Form(s) that created the data since the calculation of the Summary item is based on Date of Information. When the date is earlier or the same, the Summary items will not be updated.
