Table field management (Aviation)
The Table Fields tab is used to define the table field placeholders that can be inserted into cells. These fields are defined independently of data source fields.
Having a data source is not a prerequisite for defining table fields. Data sources can be linked to the tables after the fact. However, when a data source is available, table fields can be automatically created and mapped to the corresponding data source fields.
When more than one data source is available, table fields are automatically created and mapped to the corresponding data source fields only for fields common to both.
With the exception of the symbol table field, all other fields are strings. Values from the data source are converted to strings when mapped to the corresponding table fields.
After a field has been added and appears on the Table Fields tab, you can right-click the added field to copy the cell or selected row, delete the row, rename the field, define an alias, or move the selected row up or down in the list.
