External Data Properties
This dialog box appears when you import external data, or when you select the Properties... of previously imported data in the Multi-query pane. It allows you to view and edit the attributes of the selected external data.
This dialog box contains the following fields and options.
|Name||Enter the name of the external data. You can choose any name you like; Publish or Perish doesn't attach any particular meaning to the data name. It is preset to the name and date/time of the file that contained the original data.|
|Original format||[Read-only] Shows the original data format, as detected by Publish or Perish.|
|Number of results||[Read-only] Shows the number of records that were successfully imported. If this number is 0, then it is likely that the import format was not correctly parsed by Publish or Perish.|
|Imported fields||[Read-only] Indicates which fields were found in the imported data. Unchecked fields were either not present in the original data, or did not contain any actual values.|
