Don't worry, Ryan. Have a OW developer show you how to create a table with
"Table Design Aid". I am not a developer but I know it can't be too
difficult. Once your done with that (save when exit TDA) your specs are
created and OW knows your F55xyz. To create the table physically in your
database you would have to go to Table Operations, hit the Create Table
Button, select a datasource where to create it in, enter a password and hit
ok. So don't worry, if you don't want to, you will not recreate the table
and lose your data. TDA will not do that by itself.
When you are new to OW there is always a little bit of confusion between a
table specs and the table in your database. Table specs is what OW thinks
your table looks like (columns, etc.). OCM tells OW where it is, the
physical location. And then your database (or DBA) assures that the table
really is there where OW looks for it and has the proper data.
Yes, you're correct, you will not need an OCM if they are in your Business
Data Library.
Let us know, Gerd

Gerd,

Yes, my file does already exist and has data and I do not want to lose the
data. The file is already located in Business data, so I would assume I
wouldn't have to add anything to OCM.
Now, do I have to go in Table Design Aid to create the table? Isn't it
going to want me to create the table? Again, I don't want to lose my data.
