Set Up Fields

Fields can be added, deleted or renamed by choosing Fields from the File/Setup menu. New fields can be added by simply typing their names into the dialogue box below however it is sometimes convenient to create them by duplicating or copying existing fields. Duplicate and copy are useful for creating large number of fields sharing the same archive and for creating dummy fields to enter different data to see what effect this has on the model.

When the dialogue box opens the first field in the list will be highlighted. Select a different field by using the down arrow on the keyboard or clicking on the name with the mouse. To use a different farm click on the down arrow to the right of the farm combo box. To associate an archive with a field, select a field in the field list box and then select an archive from the met archive combo box.
