Creating Files and Fields

Making a Field Mandatory

For all Data Types except COMPUTED, as you create the field, you're asked:

    IS "xxxxxxxx" ENTRY MANDATORY (Y/N):  NO// 

The "xxxxxxxx" represents the name of the field. If you answer YES, the user of your file will not be allowed to skip the field without entering data for a particular entry.
