Managing Groups in Advanced View
A group is a container of elements that define a record type definition. There are four group types:
Sequence - Indicates that the elements in the group must appear in a specific order
Choice - Specifies that the elements of the group are mutually exclusive; only one can occur at a time.
Inherited - Fields in the group referenced in another group.
All - Defines a group with elements that can appear in any order.
The contents of a group depends on the context in which the group is defined. In type definitions, a group can only contain fields or record type references. A group in a schema definition can only contain record type references. A group cannot directly contain other groups. Also, the schema groups create a record in connectors. If the target is a single record connector, it does not allow the user to remove the groups (record). If the target is a multi-record connector or multi-mode database connector, it allows the user to add or remove groups (record).
