The Data Field Acquisition Tool (DAQ) enables you to generate forms in the system, either for internal reporting and analysis purposes or for legal compliance.
In the system, each form is divided into sections, and a section comprises a number of fields. A field stores data from different system locations.
The DAQ tool retrieves the attributes of the form, sections, and fields, as well as field data sources from the corresponding tables. The DAQ tool also retrieves the required data including attributes of the electronic file for the form, and generates a Temporary Sequential File (TemSe) or an XML file.
By making customizing settings you can determine, for example, the source code routine that extracts data for a target field.
Delivered DAQ settings can be used to make necessary settings to achieve expected result, based on data in the system and business requirements.
