Dear all,

what is the difference between flow fields and flow filter …

With regards,


A FlowField is displaying a calculated value based on the CalcFormula of the FlowField. So it does not contain any data!

A FlowFilter is used in the CalcFormula of a FlowField. In a FlowFilter the user can enter a filter string which will influence that calculation of the FlowField it is used in.

So both are actually no fields. Where as a FlowField generally will display a value related to an individual record (like for example the Balance field for a customer), a FlowFilter is actually a table attribute as it’s value will influence the value of a FlowField on all records.

Hope this helps.
