Using N/A in responses

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A lot of the guides and instructions say not to leave things blank and put "N/A".

I find this really confusing for two reasons:

1) Often Adobe will not let you type "N/A" because it's programmed to only validate a number or a date

2) What about Children? We don't have any, are we meant to go through 30 fields of blank children's names and details and write N/A for each an every blank field?

Where does it end? Are we meant to print it out and then force "N/A" using oldschool pen and paper?

A lot of the guides and instructions say not to leave things blank and put "N/A".

Firstly this is really confusing for two reasons.

1) Often Adobe will not let you write "N/A" because it only want to see a number or a date. You can type NA without the slash or just write it in.

2) What about Children? We don't have any, are we meant to go through 30 fields of blank children's names and details and right N/A for each an every blank field? Here you use common sense. If you enter NA for the name of your first child, it is reasonable to assume there are no more.

Where does it end? Are we meant to print it out and then force "N/A" using oldschool pen and paper? Since the forms are to be printed out anyway, there is no harm in using an "oldschool" pen.

Hi Cheezees. Really needed to vent about it . These sort of things are easy to forget to do after printing.

Would be nice if they could program their fancy forms correctly so that their own advice could be followed easily.

Going to follow your suggestions. Ty

I just put NA on the initial question if it was not applicable or not any and then left any of the following questions based on that one blank.

I didn't put NA in everything, and the only thing I had to write in by hand where the numbers for the household calculation because the computer didn't like it for what ever reason.
