15.

If a set of radio buttons represent a fixed set of values such as A, B and C then what happens if a blank value is retrieved from the database? (In some situations rows can be created on the database by other functions which are not screen based and thus the required initial values can be incorrect.)

 

8.

If a particular set of data is saved to the database check that each value gets saved fully to the database. I.e. Beware of truncation (of strings) and rounding of numeric values.
