RI/Edit Options Screen

The RI/Edit Options screen's main function is to control the amount of data retrieved from the table for an edit session. A row limit and an SQL statement can be specified to control the number of rows returned. A test count can be requested before retrieving the rows to determine the selection's impact. This screen can be used to control the maximum number of characters to display per column. All these attributes can be saved as the default for the selected table to save time in future sessions.
