Use the composite field

A composite field combines information from two fields in a table to form a single field.

About this task

Editing a composite field changes the short description; editing the short description changes the composite field.

Sorting on a composite field is based only on the short description and not the number.

Searching on a composite field is enabled for both the short description and the number:
  • To search by the number using the list header, enter an asterisk (*) before the search term. For example, *PRJTASK0010016.
  • To search by the number using the filter, create a condition similar to: [Task] [contains] [PRJTASK0010016].
