Common parameters

All fields have common parameters and specific parameters.

Pressing the Parameters button or double clicking in the grid on the desired field will open the management window. Remember that the display parameters can be managed directly within the data form editor.

Table Name

The name of the table where the field was created. Following creation of the field this value can no longer be changed.

Field Type

The type of field identifies the type of value that will be stored within it. Remember that the choice of type limits the possible changes that can be made. An example: a text field can be transformed into a note field since both manage alphanumeric values, but it cannot be transformed into a numeric field since the values belong to different families.

Certain fields, which in addition to storing information perform automatisms on the data, cannot change their type.
