The primary source for attribute properties is the database schema. The secondary source is the running smart data object.


Current SDO


Labels and Column-Labels, Help-Text, Display-Format:
Changes in the SDO overwrite the schema property. The developer should supply reasonable properties in the SDO if the schema definitions are not suitable for output. Users cannot change these properties.

Field Order#:
Changes in the SDO overwrite the schema property. The developer should sort the attributes in the SDO. The smartDataPump uses the SDO's sort order and incremets it decimal-walked. The user can change and save this field order number.

Width-Characters:
Changes in the SDO overwrite the schema property. The developer can define a reasonable width for large text fields in the SDO. The smartDataPump limits the column width of character fields to 50 characters, if the length of the column-label does not exceed this limit. Users can change the column width.


Parent SDOs


If the current SDO is a child of another SDO, the smartDataPump uses particular attributes supplied by the parent SDO to describe the parent level (and the parent's parent ...).

The parent level itself is designated by the label of the first buffer (database table) of the parent SDO.

Properties of attributes taken from parent SDOs can't be changed. The developer defines which attributes are fetched from parent SDOs (see attribute filters). The user can suppress attributes.


Sort Order


The report's sort order is determined through the SDO's current sorting sequence, thus users must sort the browser before they start the output.
