When completing UAD‑compliant reports, it's likely a lot of the forms data is going to be merged in from older pre‑UAD files. As a result, non‑UAD data must be corrected for many of the fields.

The difference in UAD‑compliant reports is that entries for many of the fields are a composite of different picklists that TOTAL presents dynamically and with real‑time validation, so you won't put in a non‑UAD compliant entry. As a result, the fields won't accept direct keyboard input, including using BACKSPACE and DELETE to clear the field. To remove the data in these "stuck" fields, simply use the CTRL+K "hot key".

Place your cursor in the field you wish to clear, and then press CTRL + K to remove any residual data.
