You can only add child recordsets to your Cartegraph database, not parent or top–level recordsets.

  1. Click Screen Shot 2018-04-12 at 3.27.44 PM.png> Structure Manager.
  2. Locate and select the recordset to add the child recordset to.
  3. Click Create > Recordset.
  4. In the General section, enter Plural Name, Singular Name, and ID following the recordset naming rules.
  5. In the Data Source section, enter the name of the database table for the recordset in Table Name.
  6. Click Save.
  7. If this is the only change being made to the recordset, click Publish. If there are other changes to be made, then you can publish after all the changes are made.

The recordset is created and ready to add new fields. When you change data structure, custom layouts in Layout Manager need to be reviewed for updates.
