Hi


Can a Data Master field which is of type "Category" be based on another Data Master?


For example in a Product, can the 'status' field be taken from another Data Master called 'status'?


Otherwise I'm entering product status (e.g. active, obsolete, delisted) twice


Thanks

What I would do is to have a simple text field in Product named 'status'. Then add a selection list in all the screens where you add a product and then click in the 'pencil' icon in that select list properties. There select the Data Master status as the data source for the select list.
