BANNER Data Entry Standards

Because BANNER is an integrated system, it is critical that offices and departments are consistent in the way data is entered into the database. In view of keeping the data clean and consistent, the following data entry standards have been decided upon.

If you have questions or concerns about a data entry standard listed here, please contact opus@oberlin.edu.

Address entry in BANNER

In general, you should never use punctuation when entering addresses in BANNER. There are a few exceptions to this (such as the slash in c/o, for example) but for the most part, we are trying to keep punctuation out of the address fields as much as possible.
