Changing invalid numeric fields in your data

To change an invalid numeric field in your data (all asterisks shown in the field display) to a specified numeric value, you can enter the CE (Change Error) primary command.

The find argument for the CE command is assumed to be a numeric field in error.

When a numeric field in error is found, it changes the field to the string specified in the CE command. The specified string must, of course, be a valid numeric value.

To change the next field in error (to the same value), either enter the CE command again, or press the RChange function key (F6).

To just find numeric fields flagged as being in error (without changing them), use the FE primary command.
