The Domain Administrator uses the User Defined Tables and Fields Editor to define custom tables and fields that contain properties and values that are required by users, but are not shipped with the software.

You must have System Administration rights and be the Domain Administrator for the Domain you want to apply the User Defined Fields and Table. If you only have System rights and are not the Domain Administrator for the Domain you want to apply the User Defined Tables and Fields, the User Defined Tables and Fields are not available for selection.

The user defined tables and fields are defined in the Administration module at the domain level so that the defined properties are common to all the plants in a domain. These user tables and fields are used with the following item types:



Cable set

Calibration result

Calibration setting

Control System tag


Electrical equipment
