Editing Customization Keys and Tables

Follow

You can browse the different customization options using the explorer window on the left of the Customization Manager. The Customization Manager allows you to edit both Aeon Customization Keys as well as Customization Tables. You can tell whether a customization option is a key or a table by looking at the icon located next to it in the explorer view. The explorer view is arranged by function. The Key View on the right side of the Aeon Customization Manager allows you to edit customization keys within the database. You can view the current key value under Key Value and a description of what the key does under Key Description. If you want to change the key value, make the change and click the Save button to save the change as described below.

Editing Customization Tables

The Table View of the Aeon Customization Manager allows you to edit customization tables within the database. Many of the tables are larger than the display; you can scroll to the right, as well as up and down, using the scroll bars provided. You have the option of editing a table entry, deleting it entirely, or adding new entries to the table, as described below. These buttons are located on the Home menu of the Customization Manager ribbon.
