There are many different types of fields, each with a specific purpose, but they break down into three main categories.
You can use fields to do the following: Yet another way to use fields is to create user-interactive forms.
I'm really stuck trying to find out how to force a programmatic refresh of openoffice writer (3.3) cell calculations when the cell values are bookmarks and the bookmarks are updated programmatically (via UNO calls in Java).
and saving million$, but still Getting The Job Done. (English schools tend to assign each pupil to a "house"... If you try the form, and have the tables displayed while you do it, do not be alarmed if you don't see things you "have added" appearing in the displays of the underlying tables. Really, really cool: The provisions you can make with careful management of the two "cascade" options/properties on the link between Name. That will delete it from the Name table, and all of the incident records for that pupil... You can also set things up so that a name can't be removed unless there are no records in the Incident table... You can set things so that if you change, say, Fred to Freddie, then all of the incidents that Fred was charged with now relate them to Freddie.So change style of titles of paragraphs to heading (1,2,3 etc.) and you will see them in the Table of Content.Then right-click on the Table of Content and select Update Index/Table from the pop-up menu. Not only is it a Bad Idea, but it is often less convenient than the correct answer: Work with a form, which is based on the table... The following will give you an example of doing so. My scenario: I decided that the teachers at Hogwart's might want a way to record pupil misdemeanors. First the user selects one of the names in the first datasheet, or adds a new name. (Enlarge, reduce, restore to default, respectively.) (This is fully explained, and there are more tips, at my Power Browsing page.)
