Within an entity, a data item is stored in a field, which is similar to a column in a database. Each field holds one type of data, such as text, images, or dates.
In the AgilePoint NX Documentation and UI, the term "field" can have other meanings. AgilePoint NX sometimes uses the term "field" in place of form control on an eForm, or an instance of a form control. The term "field" is also commonly used to refer to any control on a UI, including the UI for AgilePoint NX.
