Keywords represent data that's used many times in the program. Keywords simplify data entry and eliminate the possibility of spelling errors and inconsistent usage. They're saved in lists that are organized into categories, and you can add or delete terms from the lists as needed.

Note: Common keywords can be shared between PDS programs. You can set these options in the Initial Setup window. We recommend ensuring all users in your organization know what keywords they can add and the guidelines to follow when adding them.

After you set up a keyword list within a category, you can print a copy for reference. You might give a copy to coworkers who enter data so you can all use keywords consistently. Click Print in any keyword list dialog box.
