Preset List: Changing an Item via the Internal List

See Preset List /Drop-down Editing for more information regarding preset lists.

NOTE: If you choose to change Existing Documents option in Step 7, changes to the documents in the database will occur immediately and cannot be un-changed by clicking on [Cancel]. However, changes to the list itself can be cancelled by clicking on the [Cancel] button in any of the List Management dialog boxes.

  2. Click on the [Selected Field Options] button.
