What is an Entry?
An entry is a record of information for a specific purpose. This information is entered into a ' kind of a record. Suppose you have the habit of recording in a diary details of your daily study then as you finish reading this Unit on a particular day you will make an entry in your diary about your completion of the unit that day. Or, again as a householder you keep a memo of your expenditure every month; then, you make an entry in a record about the amount spent on a particular item on a particular day. Similarly, if you make note of a book that you added to the stock of your library you are making an entry in the 'Accession Register'.
Information provided in an entry can be very brief as in the case of an entry in an attendance register in a school or a factory, or it can be fairly descriptive as in the case of an entry in a diary. The amount of information to be provided in an entry depends upon the nature of the entry and its purpose.
