Table properties in the Binding tab
When you select a table,
the Binding tab in the Object palette displays several data binding
options. Options that are not specifically related to creating a
data connection apply both to data bound to a data source and data
saved to a file when the object is not bound to a data source.
the name of the table. If existing tables in the form use the same
name, the number beside the name identifies the instance for the
current table. See To name and rename objects.
Sets the default data-binding method:
- Use name
- Enables data merging and saving options. Data values are
merged and stored implicitly according to Adobe data-merging rules.
- Use global data
- Associates a single data value with all objects that have
the same name (see To define a global field).
- New Data Connection
- Starts the New Data Connection wizard. To define a connection
using the wizard, see Create a data connection to an XML schema or Create a data connection to an OLE database.
- No data binding
- Disables data binding. Because the object will not capture
or display merged data, any information associated with the object
is not written as output when the form data is saved/submitted.
