CARRY FORWARD (CF) is data items that will always carry forward into subsequent transactions. If the item is allowed per the required/conditional matrix and no entry is made, the new transaction will reflect the data from the most current record. For example, if the new transaction to be added is current (in sequence), the CF data item will carry forward the data from the prior active record. If the new transaction to be added is out-of-sequence and no entry is made, the CF data item will reflect the data from the current status record. If the item is not allowed, the new transaction will reflect the data from the prior active record.
