Typically, you create new database tables by defining their data field structure in the Table Editor window. Other methods for creating tables include:
- Creating a Tabbed Control
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Layout Control/Creating a Tabbed Control.xml
Tabbed controls provide a familiar, tabbed interface that you can use on a form to organize fields, controls, and other objects. For example, you have a form in which you enter invoice information. By creating a tabbed control, you can have one tabbed page on which you fill in customer information, one page on which you enter billing information, and a third page on which you enter individual line-items.
- Creating Conditional Table Lookups
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/DBF/Creating Conditional Table Lookups.xml
When one of several tables might supply the field's value, use a Conditional table lookup. Instead of choosing one lookup table, you complete the Table Conditions table, filling in the names of two or more tables along with a Conditional expression for each that determines which table is used for the lookup. The tables you use must have the same field names and types since there is only one field mapping.
