Assign a locator to a field

Once a locator is defined, it can be assigned to a field that receives the data.

Some locators, such as the Database Locator, provide more than one data item. For every column for a record in a database, a corresponding subfield is available for the locator. Each subfield can be assigned to an extraction field.

You can assign a locator to a field by following these steps:

  1. Expand the Project Tree and select the class that contains the field to be assigned to a locator.
  2. Optionally, view the class contents if they are not already displayed.

    The hidden class contents are displayed.

  3. Select the field in the Project Tree.

    The Field properties are displayed in the Details window.

  4. On the Details window, in the General group, select the locator in the list of available locators.
  5. Optionally, assign the appropriate subfield.
