About lookups

Frequently you will notice an icon shaped like a magnifying glass within the ClearView application.  This is known as a lookup.  Some are in the form of drop-down lookups, which incorporate a built-in drop-down list of options.

    Using a lookup allows you to search available values for the field associated with the lookup.  No need to memorize a litany of codes or plaster reference sticky notes around your monitor; using a lookup is a convenient way to populate a field without having to look elsewhere for the values you need.
