Using CVDATA to Display Cell Information

  1. Either create a new cell, or double-click on an existing cell to open the Edit Cell dialog.
  2. In the Calculation box, enter the CVDATA function to call the unique identifier for the data you want to retrieve from the CaseView Database.

    For example, with Global Cell data, to get the data with the Identifier ALPHACELL from the database, enter CVDATA("ALPHACELL").

    For Form cell data, enter CVDATA("GROUP","FORM", "ID"), that is, the group name, the form name, and the identifier.

  3. Click OK.
  • Using the CVDATA, the database information is display only. If the cell is also designated as an input cell, when a value is input the database value is overridden in the cell, but not changed in the database.
