    • ASSIGN Age = 24
  • Assign the ‘Ill’ field (Yes/No field type) the value No
    • ASSIGN Ill = (-)
  • Assign the ‘AteChicken’ field (checkbox field type) the value Yes
    • ASSIGN AteChicken = (+)
  • Assign the ‘DateOfInterview’ field (Date field type) the value 5/5/2012
    • ASSIGN DateOfInterview = 5/5/2012
  • Assign the ‘CaseStatus’ field (legal values field type) the value “Confirmed”
    • ASSIGN CaseStatus = “Confirmed”
  • Assign the ‘Gender’ field (Comment Legal field) the value “F”. The field is coded as M-Male, F-Female.
