An eForm record is functionally very similar to a row in a database table. Some records it may be useful to have some fields that contain more than one value. A simple option for doing this is to make an eForm be multi-line.
In multi-line eForms, one record will contain multiple lines and each line is identified by [LineNumber]. If you need to refer to a specific column in a formula you can use this syntax:[Amount]#7.
Any multi-line fields need to be set up as not “Header”.
What does ‘Header?’ do exactly?
All columns are by default considered HeaderColumns. If you have no multi-line fields in your form, then this has no visible effect.
IF you have a record that has data on multiple lines
THEN all fields that are marked as Header = TRUE will be replicated over each line
From the above example, you might visualise it as:
Notice that Total has only one value. If you were to do a tabular report of this record, you would actually see:
It is beyond the scope of this tutorial, but this helps when writing formulas, and with tabular reports.
