Quickly Adding Items to Lookup Fields
Lookup items are managed in the Dictionaries module in Affinity (‘dictionary’ is another name for database table). Rather than update the dictionary itself, you can simply double-click a lookup field (while a screen is in edit mode) to add an item. Be sure to ask your Affinity system admin to run the Generate Lookups process to share your changes with other Affinity users.
Viewing All Masterfile Field Values at Once
Ever wondered if there is a way to view all of the values in masterfiles in a format similar to a spreadsheet? Administrator > View Window Manager lets you do just that. It’s useful when you need to check field values without scrolling through lots of records and screens. You can also compare fields in multiple screens side-by-side.
