|Spatial Manager / Named Tables|
Spatial Manager allows you to edit the datasource for a file-based named table or the properties of a database or view table if you have Modify permissions for the named table. You can change a table's connection, datasource, or volatility flag. For XY tables, you can change the XY columns, coordinate system, and display style. For view tables, you can change the MI SQL query. You can also fix a broken table (for example, if the file path specified does not exist for a file-based named table, the SQL query for a view table is invalid, or the schema or table does not exist for a database named table). Editing will update other resources (for which you have Modify permissions) that reference the modified named table to reflect the new path or database connection URL, therefore preserving references between resources and the permissions assigned to the modified resource.
To edit a named table in Spatial Manager:
A confirmation dialog opens to inform you about other resources that may be affected by modifying the named table. Click a link to open the associated resource in a new tab, to help you determine whether or not you want to proceed with the edit.
