Lets you update system properties like Screen Position, Directories, Other Options
Lets you set / update the Database (JDBC) Connection properties RecordEditor backend DB.
These options let you update the various JAR (java libraries) used by the RecordEditor. The only time you should need to do this " is if you are adding your own code to the RecordEditor or installing Velocity.
These option let you define your own Types, formats to the RecordEditor
This option lets you define the look and feel of the RecordEditor
You can now choose from the Java builtin Look and Feels + several other Look and Feels (these require a seperate download). A word of warning, not all Look and Feels will work with the RecordEditor and even if they work they may slow down the editor (or at the very least slow down the startup), Also IU have not done thorough testing with any of Look and Feels. If you want an alternative Look and Feel, I would suggest looking at
Note: OfficeLnFs only works on Windows and requires Java 1.5.
You can now choose from a variety of different icon sets or create your own.

There is now an option to define Date Types to the RecordEditor.

What is the storage Format, for normal Text files choose Char, but in binary files you can use Binary Integer, Mainframe Packed Decimal etc.
Format of the date (dd - Day, MM - Month, yy - Year etc). This field is Case Sensitive. Day and Year are lower case, Month is uppercase (mm is minutes).
