Selecting a field for attribute change

You select a field from the Field Selection/Edit panel (Figure 1). To select a record for attribute change, enter E in the Cmd field adjacent to the required field. You can enter E against as many fields as you like. For each field you select, Z Data Tools displays a Field Attributes panel.

The attributes you can change are:
  • Output width
  • Whether to display or suppress leading zeros on numeric fields
  • Values to use for creating new records

The attributes are used to determine how to display or print a field.
