Lesson 17. Editing Text Fields > Understanding Text Fields

Understanding Text Fields

When you enter text into a mail memo, a discussion group message, or a document, you enter the text between the brackets on the page. These brackets define the text field. A text field is simply an area in which you can enter text, graphics, or other items (such as an attached file). Depending on the document and the database template, you may see one or several fields. In some documents, a text field is preceded by a few words that explain the type of text you're to enter in the field. Figure 17.1 shows three types of fields: a text field, a rich text field, and a keyword field.

The following list describes the common fields and elements you'll find in Notes' database documents. Note that not all documents contain all of these elements.
