DI 80550.190 Data Tables

By storing case data in a central location, CPMS makes updating information about experts, representatives, interpreters, etc., much easier to perform, eliminating most repetitive keying. CPMS relies on user-maintained tables which provide the ability to search by criteria (including experts, specialties, hearing sites, office codes, and states). Eleven data tables, housing information from various stages of the business process, are maintained locally, regionally, or nationally. Only users with Table Administration rights can edit and add to a table unless otherwise specified.
