Dear friends,
The errors and multiple entries that plague existing database would be eliminated in the new one. (What does "multiple entries " mean here?)
Thank you very much.

Hi, It should be self explanatory.

If you take this Forum for example: Multiple Entries would mean, Topics that were on the same subject.

To give another example: the Local Car Auction lists cars by Manufacturer.

Under Honda: there is 'Honda', and also 'Honda Cars'. That is a multiple entry, because you have to look under both headings to find all the Honda Cars for sale.
