UDefField Table (146)
Definition table for user-defined fields; one row in this table corresponds to one generation of one field. The user defined fields that are in use, and earlier versions of user defined fields. ColumnId refers to the field type; see UDXXXSmall or UDXXXLarge for the referring ID. Preferences prefsection='System', prefkey='CurrentUdefVersioncontact' (or CurrentUdefVersionperson, project, sale), gives you the current version of user defined fields. prefkey='AdminUdefVersion<...>' gives you the current version that's being edited. If Current version = admin version, no editing has been done since the last Publish of user defined field was performed.

The UDefField table contains many versions of the same field. When you publish a new udef field layout, a new version is created.
The version that is currently used by the SOCRM client is stored in a user preference.
UDefField contains an ownerTable ID, which table is this user defined field for.
This field is an enum, unlike all other owner Table IDs in the database. It does not use the table ID listed in the dictionary.
- UDefContact = 7
- UDefPerson = 8
- UDefProject = 9
- UDefSale = 10
- UDefTemp = 11
- UDefAppointment = 12
- UDefDocument = 13
- 1 = Number
- 2 = Short text (up to 39 chars long)
- 3 = Long text ( 40 to 200 chars long)
- 4 = Date (for dates 1970 - 2036, stored as Long value)
- 5 = Unlimited date (for dates 0001 - 9999, stored as string)
- 6 = Check box (stored as 0/1 in long field)
- 7 = Drop-down (listtableid determines which list. If listTableId = 136 then this is a user-defined list and all items are stored in the
UDList.UDListDefinition_ID = udeffield.UDListDefinition_id)
- 8 = Decimal - actually double - that is 80 bits IEEE floating point.
The Prog-id can be used to tag fields that are used by your application with a known value, so that you can easily find the udef fields you need. This may also be set from the Admin client. Must be unique per version+ownertable
|associate||Employees, resources and other users - except for External persons|
|text||Long text fields from all over the system|
|UDefField||Definition table for user-defined fields; one row in this table corresponds to one generation of one field.

|UDefFieldGL||User group link table for UDefField, for MDO item hiding|
|UDListDefinition||List table that contains the list of user-defined lists, as well as system-defined lists. The list items are stored in the UDList table.|
