This paper describes current problems with data-entry forms used in offices and discusses a method, called the syntax method, through which some of the problems can be eliminated. In particular, the technique used in this method for identifying duplicate names and improving the names of the elements is described. Results from a test of the method on three Dept. of Defense Contractor Cost Performance Forms are provided.
