# Instructions - Part 11

In this section, you'll be entering the objective data about your solutions. Your objective data will include your:  Questions, Information, Tasks, and Goals.

As you will no doubt notice, this section is a mirror image of an earlier section - 'Analyze Objective Data about your Problem' (Part 7). The reason for this is that there are aspects of your solutions that will mirror certain elements of your problem. Understanding the structural elements your solutions and how they relate to the structural elements of your problem can be a very useful in finding the best solution to your problem.

If you'd like to read more comprehensive information about how the MySolver™ database program works, see Problem-Solving Matrix and Detailed Info.

### Overview of the Problem-Solving Matrix - Objective Data about your Solutions

Step 1:  Take a quick look at our illustration of the Problem Solving Matrix. The 3rd quadrant (outlined in red) is the matrix that analyzes the Objective Data about your Solutions.

### Print the Matrix for Objective Data / Solutions

Step 2:  Print out our visualization of the matrix for 'Objective Data / Solutions' (below). Click on the form to enlarge, then print the PDF file.

This matrix is Solutions by Interrogatory Dimensions for the Objective Data about your Solutions. Interrogatory dimensions are one of the cornerstones of the Problem-Solving Matrix.

Step 3:  Write your Solution Names in the boxes at the top of each column. If they don't fit, just abbreviate them. This form is only going to be used as a checklist. You'll be using it to 'X' out the blank boxes as you go down each column.

### Print our Lists of Preliminary Standard Questions

Step 4:  Print out our lists of preliminary standard questions. They are:  Who, What, When, Where, Why, How, From Where, and To Where.

Step 5:  Login to MySolver™. Go to the Homepage Main Menu and click on the 'Objective Data - Problem' panel.

Step 6:  Begin by entering your Who questions, for your FIRST Solution, into the MySolver™ database by using our data entry form (see screenshot below). Enter your question into the Objective Data field, then choose from the drop-down menus to properly describe your data.

Step 7:  Enter all the Who questions related to your FIRST Solution. You can use the Who questions from the 'Preliminary List of Who Questions' but the best questions may be the ones you think of.
