Editing and resolving records

The purpose of editing a record is to correct or add information and then accept and resolve the record so that it can be processed successfully. Editing a record may involve using other Spectrum Technology Platform services or consulting external resources such as maps, the Internet, or other information systems in your company.

After reviewing records, you can edit, accept, and resolve them directly on the Data Stewardship Portal Editor page. You can edit one or more records simultaneously in the Tabular view, and you can edit one record at a time in the Form View.

Note that read-only fields cannot be edited. If you want to make a read-only field editable, you would need to delete all records for that dataflow and job ID and run the dataflow again after configuring the fields accordingly in the Write Exceptions stage. This would produce new records with editable fields. Furthermore, you cannot edit a field to contain a value that does not match its data type. For example, you cannot enter alphabetic characters in a field that has a numeric data type.
