Manage System Object Children Worksheets

Customized object tabs (object page) may be personal or system type. You specify this type when saving ( SAVE AS ) a new customized object tab.

Personal – Owned by and available only to the user who created it.

System - Owned by the creator but may be shared with other users and/or groups.

These customized object tabs are defined by object type (e.g., table, column, schema, report, etc.). One may manage the system type object tabs which when shared can be the default tabs (on the object page) for various users and groups of user.

Information note

The available customized tabs for a particular object type are presented when selecting a worksheet for a column of the object page .

The available worksheets are listed in two groups, System and Personal , each then in alphabetical order.

If no presentation is manually selected then the first (alphabetically) SYSTEM presentation will be used, and it will be the Default (Built-in) if no system level presentations have been shared with this user.

When multiple system object tab worksheets are shared with a user, the default presented is the one first in alphabetical order.
