Link Generic SuperDB Fields to Demographic Fields

A generic SuperDB table functions as a spreadsheet within AdminPlus and is not connected to students. You can leverage fields from a generic SuperDB table and use them on the Demographics screen of the Data Base module. This topic shows you how to accomplish that by linking fields on the Demographics screen to fields in the generic SuperDB table.

  1. On the Home screen, click Demographics.

    Demographic Selection

  2. Right-click the name of the field you want to assign as the primary validated field, and click Field Properties.

    Assigning the primary field in Demographics allows you to choose the correct information from the generic SuperDB table.

  3. Click Primary Validated Field.
