Chapter 41. Creating and Using Custom Fields > Creating a Simple Custom Field

Creating a Simple Custom Field

If you can't find an appropriate field in the list of available fields for an item, you can create a custom field in one of two ways: directly in the All Fields tab of the item, and from a control's properties sheet (discussed later in this chapter). To create a custom field directly:

  1. In Design view, click the All Fields tab of an item. The User-defined Fields in This Item selection (the default) should initially show no fields.

  2. Click the New…button to open the New Field dialog box.

  3. Enter "Preferred" as the name for the field in the Name box.

  4. Select the Yes/No field type in the Type box.

  5. Select the Yes/No format in the Format box (the selection of formats depends on the chosen field type).

  6. Click the OK button.

  7. The new field appears in the list of User-defined Fields in This Item.
