Display Options for Single Relational Fields

Relational fields are used to establish relationships between data in primary and auxiliary tables. Single Relational fields allow users to select a single item from a primary or auxiliary table as a value for the field.

For example, you could create a relationship in a primary table used to track defects to knowledge base articles in the Problems table. While users are entering information about a defect, they could select a problem record that is stored in the Problems table. This enables users to see information in the Problems table while they are working with items in the the primary table.

Single Relational fields are defined in SBM Composer. Values for Single Relational fields are set in the Manage Data feature in SBM Application Administrator. In SBM System Administrator you can specify default values for these fields in auxiliary tables.
