Database Tables and Common Fields

In ADempiere, most database tables contain a set of common fields that are used by most windows or by the underlying rules and software. These are:

  • AD_Ord_ID
  • AD_Client_ID
  • Created
  • CreatedBy
  • IsActive
  • Name
  • Description
  • Comment/Help
  • Updated
  • UpdatedBy
  • Value/Search Key

There is one other field of the form <table name>_ID that contains the ID key of the records in the table.
