Do you have SAS/AF licensed? If so, you could use it for doing error checking. It has been at least a decade since I have touched it though and I have long since forgotten what little I learned back then.

As an alternate, how much stuff are your users entering. Could you use a data step Windows statement?

I created some code that allows us to use double data entry. After running through our first batch of forms I've found two common entry errors. First, I found users are entering the wrong ID #. That then trickles down to the verification process and causes problems when we then can't match on ID #. Although I've created code to check for ID's that don't match, I'd rather institute some code that minimizes the problem. Is there a simple way to have users enter the ID once, then force them enter it again for verification purposes? Links to examples would be helpful if it is possible as I'm new to the whole FSEdit front.

Second, is there a simple way to query the ID against the SAS data file to check to make sure it hasn't been entered? I'm finding a chunk of duplicate entries I shouldn't have either. Again, links to examples or sample code would be helpful.
