VALUE synonym

I am documenting a system that will be used by tax assessors, among others.
This group uses the word "value" in a specific way. I had been using the
word for data or information or search criterion--whatever you would put
into a database field.

Examples:

The format for each statement is:
ATTRIBUTE OPERATION VALUE(S)
ATTRIBUTE: NEIGHBORHOOD
OPERATION: =
VALUE: HIGHLAND PARK

Multiple values must be separated by a comma.

At a recent user group session, I noticed that a few users stumbled. Do any
handy synonyms occur to any of you? I haven't come up with a satisfyingly
concise alternative yet (the three alternatives I listed above--data,
information, search criterion--don't quite work).

Thanks!
John
