1. Reference field - isn't this a separate report? Your requirements are not specific enough.
2. Setup a Descriptive Flexfield Column - read the Flexfields manual. Create a sequence in the database. Use when-validate-record trigger and forms customization or database trigger to populate DFF field.
the form i have mentioned above has a reference field/column in it's records.
The user idea is to customize the field in order to hold a list of values.
Why would you customize when you can just setup a DFF?
Can you please guide me on:
how can i decide which table to use, to register the DFF?
how am i going to create a structure column in the table?
How am i going to enable the DFF in the form without opening a .fmb file from the form builder?
Huh? you don't need to customize the form in to configure a DFF - just go to Setup ... Flexfields ... Descriptive, and query up your DFF.
