We want to use the UD tables, have added UD01 to the main menu through menu maintenance and are in the beginning stages of laying out the maintenance/set-up screen.

I complete adding the fields I need to my maintenance/set-up screen using the customization toolbox and have added labels to both text boxes. The label for Character01 is "Material Type" and the label for Character02 is "Size Range". When I go into the data dictionary viewer and select my UD01 table and select the Character01 field, there is no indication in the data dictionary as to what label I have given to this field and there is no description. Description field says "not in use".

What I need to know is this: How to I get the "Label" section and the desctiption section in the Data Dictionary Viewer (right side of the screen) to show that Character01 has a label: "Material Type" and the description is: "This field is used to reflect they material type being quoted."

You wont actually be able to change information at the table/field level
until V9 (i.e. look at it in the data dictionary or some other method of
viewing tables and fields to show your custom label vs the out of the
box character01.



As a side note, if you plan on creating reports using crystal or BAQ
driven crystal reports I highly suggest you use the ShortChar01 type
fields and Character01 etc are really message fields for large string
inputs and they don't play well for sorting and grouping. ShortChar
fields were designed for 250 characters or less and are more true string
fields.

We want to use the UD tables, have added UD01 to the main menu through
menu maintenance and are in the beginning stages of laying out the
maintenance/set-up screen.

I complete adding the fields I need to my maintenance/set-up screen
using the customization toolbox and have added labels to both text
boxes. The label for Character01 is "Material Type" and the label for
Character02 is "Size Range". When I go into the data dictionary viewer
and select my UD01 table and select the Character01 field, there is no
indication in the data dictionary as to what label I have given to this
field and there is no description. Description field says "not in use".

What I need to know is this: How to I get the "Label" section and the
desctiption section in the Data Dictionary Viewer (right side of the
screen) to show that Character01 has a label: "Material Type" and the
description is: "This field is used to reflect they material type being
quoted."
