|Table name||The name that describes the contents of the table. This
name is typically derived from the plural form of the items in the table. For
example, if each item in the table represents a customer, the logical name for
the table should be
Customers. You can modify the logical
name of an existing table.
Tip: The name that you type in this field automatically populates the Database table name, which must be unique within the SBM database and is limited to 24 Unicode characters. You should limit the logical name to 24 characters, as additional characters will be left off of the Database table name.
|Singular item name||The name that describes a single item in the table. For
example, if each item in the table represents a customer, the singular item
name should be
SBM Composer automatically fills this field as you type the logical table name. You can modify the singular item name. However, for best results, it should be unique with the SBM database.
|Edit tab name link||Shows the application editor, where you can change the application label that is visible to users. When you finish, click (in the Quick Access tool bar) to return to the current view of the table editor and the General tab of the Property Editor.|
|Database table name||
The unique internal database name for this table. SBM Composer automatically fills this field as you type the logical table name, ignoring characters after the first 24.
Note: The database name can contain only ASCII alphanumeric characters (A–Z, a–z, 0–9) and underscores. Any other characters are ignored as you type them.
You cannot change the database table name after the table is created.
|Prefix||A read-only value assigned by the system.|
|Value display format||The format that controls how items in the table appear as values to users. For details, refer to About the Value Display Format.|
|Include 'Item Id'||Shows or hides the Item ID in the value display format of
Single Relational and
Multi-Relational fields. This option applies to primary
tables and any auxiliary tables that include the
Item ID field.
Note: If the Item ID field was renamed, that name will appear instead of 'Item Id' in the option.
|Description||Optional comment or note about the purpose of this table.|
