Use this form to associate a document template with a document type and to select the tables and fields that are associated with the bookmarks in the document template.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.




Add tables that can be used for a specific document type.

Field: / Overview

Add fields from the table that you selected on the Overview tab.

The order of fields in this grid is also the order that fields will be entered into documents. To change the transfer order, select a field, and then click either Up or Down.

Field: / General
