Object Management

< All Topics

Metadata Utility comes with a pre-built list of the available Objects that can be managed. This feature enables you to Change the Naming on most Reports, Forms, Controls and Buttons and can be useful is there should be a need to re-name a particular Object and/or even change the Name that is shown to a different language (the default Language is English).

From the Main Switchboard, click on ‘Maintenance Switchboard’

Click to activate the Objects you want to manage:
-a check mark means the object is being managed.
-absence of a check mark means the object is using the default configuration/naming convention in English.
If you have enabled Object Management for a particular Object and simply want to revert back to the ‘default’ naming convention, then simply deactivate the object and next time you open that object (Report, Form), it will automatically reset itself back to the original ‘default’ configuration (which is in English).

Note that this list is NOT editable (user’s can’t change/add/delete any of the pre-built Values in this list). The available function is only to either enable or disable any of the Objects listed for management. Additionally, there are some forms that interactively change their Captioning as well as Label displayed values. Though such objects (Forms, etc) can still be renamed, once they are running, some Captioning may be changed as the Form works dynamically with the actions performed by the User.
