Part: VII APPENDIXES > STANDARDIZED TERMINOLOGY

STANDARDIZED TERMINOLOGY

When you're creating code comments, object names, help files, and system documentation, it's important to use terms that have an accepted and unambiguous meaning. You should build a list of standardized terms for your specific industry or application to ensure consistency. Table D.19 provides a short list of standardized terminology. These terms aren't required by LNC; they're only examples.
