Chapter 2. Organizing Data Efficiently > Creating a Field List

Creating a Field List

Once you have a collection of raw paper data and the input from anyone contributing information or requests you can implement, it's time to determine which major information topics you need to include in the database. In some cases, you'll already know how this information should be organized because you're copying an existing format. If so, you can skip directly to your data structure strategy. Otherwise, you need to list every data topic that might be important.
