To display only part of the Keyword Value in an Auto-Name or Print Title string:
Select the Use Alphanumeric Keyword Substring check box before selecting a Keyword Type from the Keyword Type drop-down. The Keyword Substring dialog box is displayed.
Keyword Value substrings for double-byte characters (for example, Japanese or Chinese characters) are only supported in databases that support Unicode characters.
First Character Position to Display
The position of the first character in the Keyword Value to be displayed as part of the substring.
For example, if a substring of the Keyword Value WASHINGTON is to be displayed in the string and the First Character Position to Display is set to 4, the substring of the Keyword Value will begin with H.Note:
This value must be equal to or greater than 1.
Minimum Width of Keyword Value to Display
The minimum length of the Keyword Value to be displayed.
If the Keyword Value is shorter than the minimum length, the value will be padded with spaces on the right to reach the minimum length. If the Keyword Value is longer than the minimum length, this value has no effect on how the substring is displayed.
- Enter the desired values for the options in the Keyword Substring dialog box.
- Click Cancel to close the dialog box without adding the Keyword Value or the substring to the Auto-Name or Print Title field; click Continue Without Substring to close the dialog box and add just the symbol for the Keyword Value (no substring restrictions) to the Auto-Name or Print Title field; click Apply Substring to close the dialog box and add the symbol for the Keyword Value with the substring restrictions you entered.
