There is one Field Data Consolidation page per sector in the survey All Field Data Consolidation pages use the same process for entering data Moving between Workbook pages From the Home Page, click a button with the name of the desired page to go to that page. From any other Workbook page, click the Go To Home Page button to return to the Home Page. OR Click on the tabs at the bottom of each page to move between pages

Row 10, Include outlet in analysis, should automatically change from "0" (No) to "1" (Yes) –NOTE: Depending on the settings of your computer, you may need to use commas or periods to indicate denote (e.g. 0,0031 or ). To protect against data loss, save the Workbook periodically!
13 Free of fixed fee medicines Free/fixed fee medicines usually occur in the public sector If a medicine is recorded as "available" but does not have a price (e.g. free/fixed fee medicines), enter an "F" into the appropriate cell. Medicine will then be included in the availability analysis even though there is no price data for it. NOTE: There should be a comment on the data collection form indicating that the medicine is free or available for a fixed fee. If there is no comment, data collectors may have simply forgotten to record the price. Notify the survey manager for further checking.
14 Double entry Entering long columns of prices can lead to a substantial numbers of errors The easiest way to find these data entry errors is to have a second person enter all data a second time and then identify where the numbers entered disagree The Workbook contains a set of procedures to lead you through this "double entry" process
15 Instructions for double entry Press Double Entry button on the Field Data Consolidation Page to display menu of double entry procedures Select Hide Current Data. Data already entered will be "hidden" from view and the data entry grid will be blank, allowing data to be entered a second time. –Outlet identifying information will remain to ensure that the same columns are used for the second round of data entry Re-enter data. All data for the sector should be re- entered by a second person Compare the two sets of data: Press the Double Entry button at the top of the page and select Compare current and hidden data. The Workbook will compare the two different sets of data. Any cells that do not agree will be highlighted in red.
16 Double entry: comparing data
17 Double entry: correcting errors For each error highlighted in red, check original Medicine Price Data Collection form to determine the correct value Press the Double Entry button at the top of the page and select Correct errors. A pop-up window will allow you to proceed one by one through the highlighted errors and correct them. For each error, enter the correct value and hit Save. You will automatically be taken to the next error. If you are unsure of the correct value hit Skip to move ahead to the next error. Hit Cancel to exit
