The solution is to edit the .edt file in your configuration. This file can be
opened in an edit window in Intersection Magic or notepad.
As always before making any changes to your configuration you must
back up your existing configuration and
When you start IMW Edit with a valid configuration a file with the .edt
extension is also created listing all of your field names. This file is
what defines the order and titles of the fields shown in the IMW EDIT
window. The file can be edited to change the appearance of the program.
The file has three sections Exclude, page and control.
The Exclude section allows you to not show certain basefields during data
entry. If you set any of these to TRUE the field will not be shown.
This is handy if you are not using Uword or Ulong for data entry. Changing any
of the FALSE values to TRUE will cause that field to not be displayed. As shown
Before the change.
The Pages section allows you to name the different pages shown at the bottom
of the screen. Perhaps you could define page 1 as being
general crash information, page 2 as being vehicle 1 information, page
3 as being vehicle 2 information, and so on. You are limited to about 8
characters for each page name.
Can be changed to.
The Control sections define the order of the fields, the name or text you
wish it to have, and the "valid" field name as defined in the lookup
table. So, Control1 is the first field, Control2 is the second, and so on.
Each page can display a total of 15 user fields. Page 1 is for Control1 -
Control15, Page 2 is for Control16 - Control30 and so on. The fields are number
per column starting with the top left field. This means that Control1 is the top
left field and Control2 is just below that.
An example of changing the County field with the Dir From Int field
and rename Movement 1 to Veh 1 Move is shown below:
Before the change.
Field=DIR FROM INT
After the change.
Changes to the .edt file only alter the way your data is displayed
in the IMW Edit window. It will not alter your data.
Make sure to back up the file, and store it in a safe place when you have
