    Can the text string in ID: and Name: (within field Details) Within Properties be edited ? 

    Asked by IanRm on November 16, 2014 at 07:34 AM

    Can the text string in ID: and Name: (within field Details) Within Properties be edited ? 

     

    when setting up a long form - would it be good practice (for easier diagnostics and checking/problem solving) to change FIELD DETAILS to Logical Text Descriptives within the brackets?

     

    long form logical field id field name field details change field details change field name change field id

    Hi,

    It is not possible to change the field id and field name under the field details. The field id is generated automatically from the database. The field name is generated based on the field description with limitations.

    Hope this answers your question. Thank you.

    Hello,

    That is true you can edit the field name. It will even change if you change the description or text details. Like I said, the field name is generated based on the label with limitations. So you can use the auto generated field name or edit it if you want. One of the limitations is you cannot put spaces.

     

    Thanks!
