Select this option to enable the value find feature for the field on submit, transition, and update forms. This enables users to search for values.
Specify the number of items that should be visible, without scrolling, in the list box for this field. This should typically be the number of expected values.

Select this option to let users select one or more values from a populated drop-down list.
Select this option to let users select one or more check boxes.
For fields in primary tables, you can include or exclude a value by selecting the Enabled check box, or you can select Enable all or Disable all from the More list to include or exclude all values.
To manage a large number of selections, use the Import and Export options in the More list. For details, refer to Importing Selection Field Values.
To delete a value, select the value and click Delete. In the dialog box that appears, if you want to delete the value even if it is in use, uncheck the Prevent the deletion if the value is in use option. All references to the value are deleted as well.
If you delete this field and later restore it, the values you specify are also restored. For more information, see Deleting and Restoring Fields.
Select this option to make this field the only field to appear on a single row.
Search & Query

Select this option to add the field to the Auxiliary Data search forms and the Advanced Lookup Tool and Relational Field Value Lookup forms.
The field order for the Advanced Lookup Tool and Relational Field Value Lookup forms for primary items is determined by the default field order of the table's first project in the project hierarchy. Projects are defined in Application Administrator.

If this option is enabled, an additional search icon is available for the field.
This option lets users select a value from a drop-down list on the Lookup form of the Advanced Lookup Tool, the Relational Field Value Lookup form, and Query-at-Runtime forms for reports.
