Fields Tree Reference
The fields tree shows the fields of a type or database entry point. It is used in the page designer and in the view editor. The fields tree is a slice of the schema, that is reachable from a certain entry point.
The fields tab is filled when a template or a view is edited.
Each branch in the tree indicates a navigation step in the database that results from an object reference or join. To follow a link there is no need to specify joins or navigation explicitly. Just open a branch and drag the element onto the page. ReportWeaver will automatically generate the necessary access code.
