Creating Tables

You create primary and auxiliary tables for your applications using SBM Composer. You add fields to the primary table to collect information about primary items. You add fields to auxiliary tables to collect auxiliary information. SBM Composer provides an extensive set of system and custom field types for the purpose of collecting information for primary and auxiliary items.

Before configuring a primary table, carefully consider its purpose, what types of information you want to display in state forms and to whom, and what data you want to collect in transition forms and from whom.

New tables you add to the application are defined as auxiliary tables and typically contain information that supports the items in the primary tables. Before configuring an auxiliary table, decide what type of auxiliary information is important to include in the application to support the workflow.
