    Most of the data entered on forms in the COM-FSM SIS are codes defined elsewhere in the database. When a code is entered it is verified to be one that is defined and understood. This process is referred to as validation, and is used to maintain consistent information throughout the database.

    The information used for validation (verifying that each entered code is correct) is defined in validation tables, collections of information that describe each possible code along with a description or definition.
