Need a little help?
Got it, thanks.

A little help then...

  • No need to add an ID! That is automatically added for each table that is created.
  • Please Note The first field of each database table will be the field used in the link creation, unless an alias field is present!
  • Please use the default/values box for select options for a select / radio list. Separated by a comma (,) with the default in [brackets]. Example: apples, oranges, [pears], pineapple.
  • For an integers field list, set the start number and end number only. (Example: 1##100 and place that into the default/values field.)

Confused on the tables tab? Check out the "What does the table tab mean and how do I use it?" section on the FAQs page.
