The purpose of the tables is to improve usability of particular UPDM products that cannot be achieved by using custom diagrams or matrices. Tables can be created from diagrams menu exactly the same as diagrams. All the tables in UPDM plugin are editable. 

The table pane consists of two major parts:

  1. Toolbar. It's position is fixed at the top of the table.
  2. Data Table. It is right below the toolbar.

These parts are arranged horizontally.

Toolbar buttons are quite similar for all tables. There are the Add New, Add Existing, Delete from Table, Delete, Default Owner, Move Up and Move Down, Show Columns, Report, Export, and Show Full Types buttons on the toolbar. Other buttons that are specific to particular product are described within the product specification sections.
