Analyzing Systems Using Data Dictionaries 8-2 1 5 . A default value is one that never changes on a report. F (p. 277) 1 6 . A discrete data element is one that has certain fixed values. T (p. 276) 1 7 . When a V is used as a formatting character for an element, it indicates where the decimal point should occur, even though the actual decimal point in not included. T (p. 276) 1 8 . All derived elements must be stored on a data store. F (p. 277) 1 9 . Each level of a data flow diagram should use data appropriate for the level. T (p. 279) 2 0 . It is important that data flow names on a child data flow diagram are contained within the parent process data flow. F (p. 280) 2 1 . A starting point for creating data dictionary entries is to identify and categorize system input and output data flow. T (p. 280) 2 2 . The ideal data dictionary is automated, interactive, online, and evolutionary. T (p. 282) 2 3 . To have maximum power, the data dictionary should be entirely independent from other programs. F (p. 282) 2 4 . The data dictionary may be used to generate computer source code. T (p. 283) 2 5 . The data dictionary is the one common source in the organization for answering questions and settling disputes about any aspect of data definition. F (p. 284) 2 6 . One of the rules for analyzing a data dictionary is that elements present on a data flow coming or going to a data store must be contained within the data store. T (p. 284) 2 7 .
