To All,

Since I started doing flowcharts in 1970, and have continued from paper and
pencil, through FlowDraw, Easy Flow, through to Vision, here is my (humble)
opinion, based on experience.

1) Normal Visual viewing is from upper-Left to lower-right (Visual tracking)

2) Use fall-through logic for "N" logic.

3) Use "go to" the right for "Y" logic
(You can use "off-Page Connectors" for the logic to process the "Yes"
This 'process would be on a separate Page."

4) The "N" logic will 'end' at some point..
Even if the answer is "Don't know", which then gets into "Exception Logic"

A very simple approach, but I think it will work for what you are working to



Note: Would DFD help? Flow of Logic, rather than Data?
