Record pane displays an overview of the record as a whole and all its fields.
The first row presents an overview of the whole record.
It consists of the following columns:
The name of the record is displayed in the second column and can be changed there.
The type of the record is displayed in the third column and can be selected as delimited, fixed or mixed.
The default delimiter defines character or characters separating each field from the following one (except for the last one). It is available in delimited and mixed records.
The size is a size of the whole record. It is available in fixed-length metadata.
The last column is always the label. It is similar to the field name, but there are no restrictions relating to it. See Field Name vs. Label vs. Description.
List of Records Fields
The other rows, except the last one, present the list of the record fields:
The first column displays the number of the field. Fields are numbered starting from
The second column displays the name of the field. It can be changed there. We suggest you only use the following characters for the field names:
The third column displays the data type of the field. One of the data types for metadata can be selected. For more information, see Data Types in Metadata.
The other columns display the delimiter which follows the field displayed in the row, the size of the field or both the delimiter and size. If the delimiter is displayed grayish, it is the default delimiter, if it is black, it is non-default delimiter.
The last row presenting the last field slightly differs:
The first three columns are the same as those in other field rows.
The other columns display record delimiter which follows the last field (if it is displayed grayish) or the non-default delimiter which follows the last field and precedes the record delimiter (if it is displayed black), the size of the field or both the delimiter and size.
For detailed information about delimiters, see Changing and Defining Delimiters.
