What is the asterisk column in the Alternative Editor Dialog Box used for?
The first column (with the asterisk) contains check boxes, which indicate the records that have been changed in this alternative. If the check box is selected, the record on that line has been modified and the data is local, or specific, to this alternative. If the check box is cleared, it means that the record on that line is inherited from its higher-level parent alternative. Inherited records are dynamic. If the record is changed in the parent, the change is reflected in the child.
