Pay attention to capitalization of field labels

Recommended Posts

Capitalization of the field names on the Source Definition screen is significant. For instance, if a data-entry field is labeled "Date", then it means that a date value is required by one or more of the output templates for that source. (In that case, failing to enter a date will produce "an unknown date" in the output). If the field is labeled "date" (lower case) then it means that the field is not referenced by any template. In that case, you can enter a date value but it won't appear in the output unless you change the template. A field that is labeled "" (i.e., with conditional brackets) means that it is referenced but not required by the template(s). That is, it is conditional.
