Setting field parameters is a useful step in the process of editing a field.
 


 

Use the Size edit box to define the length of the field value for integer, float, char and other data types and use Precision to define the precision of the field value, e.g. for float data type.

 

Code

A code attribute defines the sort sequence to be used for comparing field values. There are four types code attributes:

No code attribute

The column values have the code attribute defined in the database system.

ASCII

The column values are stored in ASCII code.

BYTE

The column values are stored in a code, that is, the column values are not converted by the database system.
