A View field does not create a column in the database table when the template
is being saved. Rather, it is used:
- either as a non-editable display field; or,
- as a button.
Here are some practical applications:
- As a display field, any Procedure might retrieve data from
one or more database tables, concatenate the retrieved and possible other
and display it in this field.
- As a button, it could have a Procedure with instructions to carry
out certain actions
e.g. launch a report Query.
- As a Pop-up list, any Procedure could select one of
the available values and display them; or, it could have its own Procedure
can have a distinct set of instructions for each value of the pop-up list.
