Customize your Database: Field Labels on the EDIT SCREEN

Did you know you can customize the name of fields in your AES Wave! databases?

It is extremely easy to do and should be done to tailor the program to the way your shop operates. Open any one of your AES Wave! databases and go to the EDIT screen for any record. Hover your mouse over any field name and double click it. (Field names are the black text labels located just above the white boxes with the black arrow.) A small window will pop up. Type in the new name and click OK. The EDIT screen will now display your new custom field name. This customized field name will also appear on all printouts and database screens.

1. Select the record and choose DATABASE / EDIT


2. Go into the NOTES field and type in the pathname for the file you want to link to. See first image below.


3. Be sure to include the < and > symbols to enclose the link, for example: this is link to a AES' site this is link to a graphic on the C drive in the folder named 'aeswave' this is link to a PDF file on the F drive in the folder named 'aes'


4. Choose ACCEPT when you are done


5. To access the links from within the AES Wave select the record from the Browse window and select LINKS / OPEN LINKS LIST (CTL-F). See second image below.
