Projects are groupings of collection objects linked together using a project name and other information. Each collection object can be in multiple projects and each project can have multiple collection objects.
The Project table contains the following fields by default:
- Project Name
- Project Number
- Start Date
- End Date
- Grant Agency
- Grant Number
Projects can be shown on the Collection Object form in one of two ways, as a button or as a subform. Projects cannot be shown as a query combo box.
Note: You cannot add a Collection Object to an existing Project from the Collection Object form.
If you wish to add a Collection Object to an existing Project, you must do so from the Project form.
This is an example of the Project form, shown when viewed in a dialog from the Collection Object form:
Button Form Definition
<row> <cell type="subview" viewname="Project" id="proj" name="projects" initialize="btn=true"/> </row>
This is an example of the abbreviated Project form, shown when viewing the Collection Object form:
You can add all fields from the Project table into this subform.
<row> <cell type="subview" viewname="ProjectCO" id="pr" name="projects" colspan="13" rows="2"/> </row>
- Projects have a unique
