EDF Valid Values

Various data fields in the EDF require entry of valid values. Valid values are built-in codes that the format requires for certain fields, such as contractor names, matrices, and laboratories. The reason for using specific values for these fields is to standardize  data entry, to ensure data consistency and prevent errors. Freely entered data might contain extra spaces, commas, or dashes that would make meaningful data manipulation and thorough or accurate data searches impossible.
