Understanding the Report Output Table

The report output tables include the following elements:

  • Item # or Position – Either the numerical order of the data element (first element is 1, second element is 2), or the position in the report. For example, if there is a string of data elements, such as 2009YNYN08091989, the particular element may start at position 5. In this example, position 5 is Y.
  • Column – The name of the data column.
  • Description – Additional information about the data in the columns, including state reporting rules.
  • [Table] - The name of the table where the data is stored.
  • Field Name – The name of the field where the data is stored.

Note: The Table name appears in brackets with the Field Name directly following. Example: [Table]FieldName.

  • Field Type – The field type used for the data element, such as character string, numeric, etc.
  • Field Length – The length of the data element when extracted.
