    This is system default. It is much more efficient to store code than name. What is the reason you need store description?

    Linking a User Table to a User-Defined Field

    Instead of defining valid values for a field within the field definition, you can specify that the valid values are contained in a user-defined table.

    This can be helpful if you have several fields in different tables with the same valid values, or when you want to update the valid values dynamically. Note

    You can link a field to a user-defined table only.


    • You are adding a user-defined field, as described in Creating User-Defined Fields, and you have opened the Field Data window to define the new field.

    • The field type is Alphanumeric and its structure is Regular.

    • The Set Valid Values for Field and Set Default Value for Field checkboxes are not selected.



    1.In the Field Data window, select the Set Linked Table checkbox.

    A new field is displayed to the right.

    2.In the new field to the right, select the user table that contains the valid values for the current field.

    3. Fill out the rest of the form, and choose the Add button.


    When the field is displayed on the user interface, a dropdown list appears when you edit the field. The Code and Name fields are displayed, and the value of the field is the Code value of the selected item.

    It Is by System Default

    Hope Helpful
