Creating revisions

The revisions option for Data Policy creates a revision database dictionary record, whose name is specified on the Engine Specifications tab. You can create revisions either for an entire set of records or for a single form or record. You must be at the start panel of the application you are working with to create baseline revisions for an entire set of records. For example, you create a baseline revision of all the forms in the Forms Designer from the Forms Designer main menu.

When you create a revision, you create a copy of the record only, not the associated database dictionary record. As a result, any time a field is added to a database dictionary record, you add it to the revision file database dictionary record.
