Editing individual records
You can edit individual cells in the table by double-clicking them. The edits are made permanent by clicking the Save Changes button .
- If by double-clicking the cell turns gray, then the cell cannot be edited.
- If by double-clicking the cell turns white, then the cell in editable.
- The yellow-colored cell shows that it has been edited in this edit session but the edits are yet to be saved.
Bulk editing event fields
If you want to enter the same field value to an event field, then do the following:
- Click the Calculate Field button .
- In the Field Calculator window, select the field to be updated using the drop-down list.
- Enter the desired field value.
- Click Apply.
- Click the Save Changes button to save the edits.
All the rows in the field will get the updated value from step 3.
If you find a record completely grayed out—that is, none of its cells are editable—then check if the event ID for that record is missing or is <null>. It is by design that the records with missing <null> event IDs are rendered uneditable.
There are a couple of ways to prevent <null> event ID's when adding events:
- Ensure that the event ID field's data type is a string with a minimum 32 character length. In such cases, when adding a new event and not providing a user specified event ID, the RCE will automatically assign a GUID to the event.
- If the event ID data type is not a 32 character string, then RCE will not automatically assign a GUID for the event. In such cases, define Attribute Sets to designate event ID as an attribute for user input. For more information about configuring and defining attribute sets, see Attribute Sets Configuration and Defining Attribute Sets.
