View (which displays external data linked to drawing
objects) provides two modes for opening tables:
- View mode: You can change the way the
table looks on screen by formatting columns, sorting records, or
filtering records, and you can create links between the data and
objects in your drawing. You cannot edit the contents of the database
- Edit mode: In addition to formatting
the table on screen, you can edit the data in the table and add
or delete records.
Database queries or views
are always opened in View mode.
