Field entry value is nothing but testing the compatibility between front end input value with respect back end (eg database) data types / data constraints.

Example: The back end database scheme tells for a field, only integer is required. In the corresponding front end screen, if tester enters character, then its field entry testing. Most of the field validation will be done at front end itself, but still we need to see the compatibility between front and backend.

This is important especially in case of usage of foreign key (in case front end is not using drop down or list boxes)
