Need help with patient-based data elements

Hi,
How do i create a pre-defined list of 'data values' for a particular patient-based data element?

I created the data element with text value type, a data element category with the pre-defined list of values, a DE category combination and I have specified the category combination when defining the DE.
But the predefined list does not appear when i try to enter data for an individual. Its just a text box.

Hi Marlene,

If am not wrong you can Use : Option set

Maintenance----------->Data administration---------->Option set (Here you can predefine these data values)

So after creating these option set , you just assign them to the specific data element where you want them to display. In DE we have this field for option set.

thanks
