model was initially developed for recording and monitoring staff attendance in a teaching hospital pharmacy department where
some particular “rules of engagement” can be described as notoriously rigorous and bureaucratic. Using enumerated
sets (dictionaries) helps to minimize errors when editing cells, choosing from Sickness to Forces Related Leave, all with
half hour intervals. Only one set of reports is needed, customised by editing
report configuration sheets that allows the user to choose start and end dates, staff grades, locations and sections.
