Field Order

By design, Feeder Manager (FM) 2.0 fields do not exist on feature classes so you cannot individually order them in the same way as feature class fields. You can, however, determine where the group of FM 2.0 fields (including custom fields) appear in the list of an electric geometric network feature's attributes. This is useful, for example, if you want these fields at the top of the attribute list so they are readily available without having to scroll through a long list of fields.

IMPORTANT: These two conditions must be met for the field order option to be accessible in ArcFM Properties Manager:
  • The targeted feature must belong to a geometric network.

  • You must have FM 2.0 enabled on the targeted feature's geometric network.

To set the FM 2.0 field order:

  1. Right-click a feature in an FM 2.0 enabled geometric network and select ArcFM Properties Manager.
  2. Locate the Feeder Manager 2.0 Fields section at the bottom of the Field Display tab view.
  3. Select the Field Name you want the FM 2.0 fields to follow in the feature's field name list. The default selection is Display at the Bottom.
    NOTE: The list of available fields is in alphabetical order to make the list easier to traverse once you determine the field you want the FM 2.0 fields to follow.
  4. Click OK to save your settings and close ArcFM Properties Manager or Apply to save your settings and leave the manager window open.
    NOTE: If the field you choose to place FM 2.0 fields after is deleted, the FM 2.0 fields will return to the bottom of the feature's attribute list.
