Enables you to define up to twenty custom field values for the current plant hierarchy item. Custom fields associated with a plant hierarchy item are regular text fields and behave as any other custom fields that are available in Smart Instrumentation for specific items.
For example, you can define custom field values for the current <units>, and then select the appropriate custom field value when defining item naming conventions, so that in Smart Instrumentation, this field value appears as part of an item name instead of the actual name of the <unit>.
Additionally, custom field values can appear associated with the appropriate plant hierarchy items whenever the software runs macros:
In custom title blocks (macro hierarchy_udf_y_x_t for custom field headers and macro hierarchy_udf_y_x for custom field values)
In CAD drawings
In drawings generated using the Enhanced Report Utility.
Parent hierarchy (not available for the highest plant hierarchy item) — Displays the plant hierarchy string to which the current item belongs.
<Current plant hierarchy item> — Displays the plant hierarchy item for which you opened the Properties dialog box.
Custom fields from 1 to 15 — Allow you to enter up to fifty characters in each box. You can edit the definitions above the boxes using the options in the Custom Fields dialog box. The default definitions are Custom field 1, Custom field 2, and so forth.
Custom fields from 16 to 20 — Allow you to enter up to one hundred characters in each box. You can edit the definitions above the boxes using the options in the Custom Fields dialog box. The default definitions are Custom field 16, Custom field 17, and so forth.
The software copies the custom fields (values and definitions) when copying <unit> data.
