- Creating a Simple List
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/FieldRules/Creating a Simple List.xml
If you want to provide a pre-defined list of choices for a field, use a Simple List lookup. For example, in the AlphaSports Invoices set, the Pay_Method field is defined as a Simple List lookup with the choices: "Credit", "Cash", and "Check". You can select any of these values instead of typing them in.

- Creating a Field Rule Event
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/FieldRules/Creating a Field Rule Event.xml
Events are pre-named Alpha Anywhere actions that are associated with certain Alpha Anywhere components. For example, clicking on a button on a form initiates an event called OnPush. When you click on a field, form or browse, a series of events happen. This series includes the OnArrive event for the field you clicked on, and the OnDepart event for the field you left. Alpha Anywhere lets you attach Xbasic code that executes when specific events like these occur.

- 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.
