Introducing the ABL GUI Designer : Reference : GUI Designer dialogs : AppBuilder dialogs : Other AppBuilder dialogs : Data Dictionary window
Data Dictionary window
The Data Dictionary is a tool that lets you create and modify database schema information including table, field, sequence, index, and trigger definitions.
Note: If you started the Data Dictionary without connecting to a database, only the Databases icons, an empty Database selection list, and the Create Database button are displayed. has functionality that is similar to DB Navigator. Consider using DB Navigator since it is integrated with Progress Developer Studio and is therefore more accessible to your project.
To start the Data Dictionary, select OpenEdge > Admin > Data Dictionary from the menu of any OpenEdge perspective except DB Navigator and Debug.
When started, the Data Dictionary runs in a window outside the Progress Developer Studio Eclipse framework. Online help is available from the tool's menu bar.
