Enable and disable "Split Array Fields into separate fields"

The Business Entity Designer, by default, splits array fields into individual fields. This means that the field MonthQuota of the sports2000 Salesrep table would be split into twelve individual fields.  

While OpenEdge can handle array fields, other applications may run into issues (e.g. interpreting an array field as a sub-table in an exported xml-file). 

This can be changed through the “Split Array Fields into separate Fields” setting which can be found under: 

  1. File -> Options (bottom right corner of the menu) 


  2. Menu entry “Design, cont.” 


  3. Checkbox “Split Array Fields into separate Fields”


Unchecking this field and adding the table to the design again keeps the array field as a single field with an extent.
