    Yes, it is, you can directly specifiy the data type and length when defining a table. Generally, there is no difference between a table which was defined in this way, and one which is defined with data elements. It looks the same at the database level.

    hi

    we can create a table without dataelements and domains

    by direct entry...where we directly give the datatype and length and desc of the field....

    there is no difference between tables but

    if u want to change the length of any field later then u have to go to each table and change the length...

    the advantage of using dataelements and domains is that we can just change at the domain level and those changes will b reflected in all the tables that use that datatype.....

    hope it is clear....

    Hi,

    we can define.in place of data element u can give data type with length

    eg:char10,char100,....

    there is no difference b/w tables with data elements and tables with out data elements.

    but,if we create a data element once we can reuse it for similar field in other tables in case if they should of same type.

    we can maintain field labels,value table(range of values which will be allowed for that field),and documentation only in the case we are using data elements.
