The above settings can be set to either of these values:

  0 = off
  4 digit number = on
    o 1st digit: left or right (left = 1, right = 2)
    o 2nd and 3rd digit: sort order
    o 4th digit: number of breaks after 

If the value is 0 this means off, as in do not show this field at all.

If you set a value other than 0, the number used has a different meaning. The number should in that case be a four digit number, represented as CSOB, which stands for Column, Sort Order, (line) Breaks.

  • The first digit: 1 means left and 2 means right. The screen draws in 2 cells, for the left and right side. Within the left and right side is a display or sort order.
  • The second and third digits make up one number which is the sort order. 2 digits are used so you can sort and increment your numbers such as 10, 20, 30, 40, etc. so that later you can more easily move the fields around.
  • The fourth digit is how many line breaks should be added following the data.
    • 0 for all on one line
    • 1 for 1 line break (
    • 2 for 2 line breaks (

    • 3 for 3 line breaks (
