The administration interface for management of custom tables is located in Site Manager -> Development -> Custom tables.




In this section, you can create new custom tables as described in the Creating custom tables topic. You can also Edit (Edit) or Delete (Delete) existing tables in the list. If you choose to edit (Edit) an existing custom table, you will be displayed with the user interface depicted in the screenshot below.




As you can see, the interface is divided into the following tabs:


General - this is where you can modify the display and code name of the custom table, as well as define URLs of custom pages that can be used instead of the default pages for adding, editing, viewing and listing of data items stored in the table
Fields - on this tab, you can find the field editor that can be used to manage fields (columns) of the table
Form - this tab allows you to create a custom form layout that will be used for adding and editing data items
Transformations - this is where transformations for the custom table can be created and managed
Queries - database queries for manipulation with data in the table can be created and managed on this tab
Sites - on this tab, you can define websites for which the custom table will be available
Alternative forms - alternative forms for adding and editing custom table data can be created on this tab; more info can be found in Modules -> Alternative forms -> Automatically used alternative forms
Search fields - on this tab, you can define how data stored in the custom table will be indexed by the Smart search module


More information on the particular tabs can be found in Kentico CMS Context Help, which is accessible by clicking the Help icon in the top right corner of each tab.
