Entering streets during data entry
|Top Previous Next|
Primary street: During the data entry process, if you start typing the name of the primary street and it exists in the database it will show below in the drop down box.
If you try to enter a street that doesn’t exist, you will get an error message upon trying to exit that field.
Cross street: During the data entry process, if you already have a primary street entered, ONLY the cross street names will show up in the drop down list.
HOWEVER, if you enter a name that already exists in the database but no previous records exist that cross the primary street, the drop down list will be blank, but the program will allow that new street name. So you can still enter the name (because it’s already in the database) that crosses that primary street.
If you receive an error that the street doesn’t exist, then you must add the street as a new street. (described below)
