Use the Inmagic Choices Browser to browse and add entries when searching, adding, or editing records over the Web.

Depending on what you are doing, the Inmagic Choices Browser displays different types of information. If you are:

Using the Inmagic Choices Browser while searching

To make searching the textbase easier, use the Inmagic Choices Browser to add index entries into boxes on the Web query page.

The Inmagic Choices Browser shows the Term or Word index for the first field searched by the box. Entries in the Inmagic Choices Browser are actual indexed entries from the textbase for that field. If a box contains more than one field, you can select the field whose index you want to see from the drop-down list.

If a field in the search box has both a Term and Word index, you can specify which you want to view by selecting the Terms List or Words List option button.

Using the Inmagic Choices Browser while adding or editing records

To help ensure accuracy when adding and editing records over the Web, use the Inmagic Choices Browser to add validation list entries into boxes on a Web edit page. If a field uses a thesaurus as a validation list, the list will include non-preferred terms, but if any of these are selected, the preferred term is added instead.

Note: Validation list links for Link fields show the Term index for the associated field.

Each box on a Web edit page contains one field. Using the Inmagic Choices Browser to add one or more entries into a box ensures that the information complies with the validation list set up for that field.

To browse and add validation list entries

  1. Scroll through the list of choices, or type one or more characters in the Find box and click the Find button if one is available.
     
  2. Select one or more items from the list, then click the appropriate button:
     
    • Add. Adds the selected entry into the selected box on the page. If the box already contains information, the entry is added as a new entry at the end of the field.
       
    • Replace All. Replaces any content in the selected box on the edit page with the selected entry.
       
  3. Click Close to exit the Inmagic Choices Browser.

To edit the validation list

If the ability to edit this validation list has been enabled, there is a button linking to a page where you can change, add, and delete validation list terms. It includes an option to update records affected by the term changes.
