Contact Fields

These are the Data Fields that are associated with the Contact Record.

Each Data Field has its own FIELD INDEX within the record. Each Data Field has a set maximum character WIDTH as well as the TYPE of data the field can contain.

The Contact record also contains virtual links which can be used to append the Contact to the correct Debtor.
