The table editor provides another type of facility, driven by changes in data rather than by choices of user actions. The user exit programs that the editor calls can be used to construct powerful data-driven systems.
tablesONLINE provides facilities for creating column definitions for each row in a Data Table. These definitions, called Views, are managed by tableBASE and used by tablesONLINE to control the display and editing of Data Tables. For both Views and Data Tables there are utility functions, such as copying and renaming, and functions to create, edit and display.
