Editing table properties

The Properties section allows you to view general table properties and also to modify  a comment for the table.
 

Subitems

Every tab is intended for work with defined objects (fields, indexes, etc.). To modify any object, double click it or use grid’s popup menu. The menu also allows you to add new, rename, describe, copy/paste, and drop selected objects. To operate with several objects at a time, select them with the Shift or the Ctrl key pressed. After a group of objects is selected you can operate with it, e.g. delete several objects at once, as if it is a single object.

 

See also: Fields, Foreign Keys, Checks, Triggers, and Indexes.

 

Owner

You can view  the name of the table Owner.

By default, only the owner of an object can perform various operations with the object. In order to allow other users to operate it, privileges must be granted. (However, users that have the superuser attribute can always access any object.)

 

Comment

This field contains a comment to the table.

 

Alter count

Defines the amount of table alters that were made and left. If Left alter account is close to zero, you are recommended to backup and restore the database. Otherwise, if the left alter count is equal to 0, you cannot change metadata of this table.

 

The checked Temporary option means the table is a global temporary tables (Firebird 2.1+). The On commit action defines the kind of the temporary table.

Delete action

Data in the given table are deleted from the database immediately after the end of the transaction.

Preserve rows

Data left in the given table after the end of the transaction remain in database until the connection ends.

 
 

To apply the changes, select the Apply Changes item in the Navigation bar or use Ctrl+F9 or Ctrl+F7 shortcut keys.

 

It is also possible to modify object properties without opening the object editor: use the Object Properties item of the popup menu of the selected object from the explorer tree.
