 +
 +====== Accessing the Record Inspector ======
 +
 +There are three ways to access the record inspector either using the tools section of the [[Block Creator#​WorkXpress Handbook|WorkXpress Handbook]] when viewing a [[Form Type - Page|page]] about the record, or using the [[Application Explorer]] to find the record and clicking on the id link, or by clicking on the link for a record inside of the associated records portion of the record inspector.

 +
 +====== Data Fields ======
 +
 +The data fields section of the record inspector will show the current values for the [[Field|fields]] that are associated to the [[Table|table]] the record is from.  In the example above the record is from the Contact table and the contact table has several fields associated it with it.  The values for the fields can be edited by clicking on the edit wrench. ​ The stored value for the field can be edited and viewed by clicking on the expand button. ​ The ability to edit records with this tool is for development and testing purposes when it might be necessary to edit values that are not in an interface. ​ It is not recommended to use this tool as an administration system.
 +
 +====== System Fields ======
 +
 +The system fields are fields that are created and populated by the system automatically. ​ While it is possible to edit the values of the system fields it is not recommended.
