About the Set up Custom Fields for Names window

You use this window to set up custom fields for customers, vendors, or employees. The fields appear on the Additional Info tab when you are editing a customer, vendor, or employee record. In the case of customers and vendors, you can also add your custom fields to sales and purchase forms.

What happens when I rename a field?

If you rename a field that is already in use, data previously entered into the field remains unchanged. For example, if you change the name of a field from "Sales Region" to "State," a previous transaction where you entered "Far West" as the sales region will now show "Far West" as the state.

When the new name changes the meaning of the field, you may want to assign the name to a currently unused field instead.
