The data commonly used for display, compliation, and estimation operations are designated as 'active status' data. In addition to data having active status, Cranium and synapse also enable you to store data with status values of passive, rejected, or unknown. Passive data are typically data that are duplicates of data considered to be of higher quality. Rejected data is data that should not be used because of inaccuracy or inconsistent reporting. Unknown data are data whose quality is currently unknown.
The All Data Dialog enables you to record data of all status values. The dialog is activated by selecting the Edit All Data command from the data control's commands menu.
The All Data dialog provides controls for displaying data, displaying source information, editing data values, sorting data, and assigning status values.
|Table Control: displays the current list of data. Each row contains a status value and datum value. Clicking the left mouse button on a table row selects that table row. Clicking and holding the left mouse button down and then dragging the mouse will select several table rows. Double-clicking the left mouse button on a row selects the row and edits the contents of that row.
|Reference Control: displays the name of the reference associated with the currently selected datum.
|Comments Control: displays the comments associated with the currently selected datum.
|Edit Button: activates the Datum Edit dialog enabling you to enter the datum's value, accuracy, units, and source information. See the Datum Edit Dialog documentation for details.
|Set Status Button: displays a menu listing possible status values. Selecting a status value from the menu assigns it to each datum selected in the dialog's table control.
|Commands Button: pressing the dialog's Commands button or clicking the right mouse button on the table control displays the commands menu. This menu provides standard commands for copying, pasting, and clearing data values. See the documentation on Common Menu Commands for details.
|Set Source: activates the Assign References and Comments dialog enabling you to assign a reference an comments to all selected datum rows. See documentation on the Assign References and Comments Dialog for additional details.)
|Sort Button: the dialog's Sort button will be enabled if two or more rows are selected. Pressing the Sort button activates the Sort Attribute dialog. This dialog enables you to sort data in ascending or descending order by the selected attribute.
|Add Rows Button: pressing the Add Rows button will add rows to the bottom of the table control.
|Statistics Button: activates the Data Statistics Dialog. This dialog calculates and displays several summary statistics for the listed data values including average, standard deviation, and expected minimum and maxiumum values at various confidence levels. These statistics are often useful in determining data values whose status should be set to 'rejected'.
|Show Reference: retrieves the reference stored in the current bookmark's Reference Section and opens the reference's associated document.
You can use either the Datum-Units-Reference All Data dialog or the Datum-Units-Reference Datum Dialog to edit the active datum. The results will be the same using either dialog.
