Question: In Options/Maintenance there is an option to change field names. I am curious to know why I am not able to see the field names beyond the Custom tab? Am trying to determine the best way to handle lost/missing items. Was thinking I might like to rename the "CONDITION" field on the "Copy Info - Main" tab to "ITEMSTATUS" rather than renaming one of the custom fields?

Answer: Click on the Database list box and, select LIB_COPIES, go to step 2. Select the copy field (CONDITION) and enter a new name.
