The system dynamically reads the label master table to determine the appropriate labels to display on screens and reports. For the system to display labels from the label master, Translate Frames must be Yes in Label Control (126.96.36.199). Otherwise, screens and reports display field labels statically from the source code.
You can modify how labels display in Label Master Maintenance (188.8.131.52). You may want to modify labels in order to meet specific company needs or to improve definitions of non-English labels.
Label Master Maintenance (184.108.40.206)
The system validates the language code and accesses the term. The term is the key that links labels to fields, allowing the system to determine which labels to display. The term remains the same regardless of the language selected.
Terms display in all uppercase with underscores; for example, CALCULATE_DUE_DATE is the term for Calculate Due Date when the language code is US (American English).
Use Label Detail Maintenance (220.127.116.11) to assign terms and labels defined in Label Master Maintenance to fields generically or to fields in specified programs.
Warning Because terms can be assigned to fields accessed by many programs, label modifications and new term assignments should be made with extreme caution.
