What is Queue Validation?



When validating a queue, The Raiser's Edge examines all information entered in the queue to determine whether any data entry errors exist. For example, the program checks to see that all output file names are valid, that duplicate file names are not used, and that input queries can be found. Other examples of validation include ensuring the printers for all printer output can be found and ensuring that every selected report contains all necessary information.
