Go Up to Database Dialog Boxes
Use this dialog box to create a persistent field component for a dataset.
Each time you open the dataset, the product verifies that each non-calculated persistent field exists or can be created from data in the database, and then creates persistent components for the fields you specified. If it cannot, it raises an exception warning you that the field is not valid, and does not open the dataset.
After you have created a field component for the dataset, the product no longer creates dynamic field components for every column in the underlying database.
Tip: To select multiple fields, press CTRL and click the fields. To select a range of fields, press SHIFT and click the first and last fields in the range.
