Data Fields identify the inputs and outputs of an Activity. For example, an
Activity called "Process Student Course Request" could require a form with the
list of courses the student wants to take as input. The availability is checked and a
form that lists the courses they are enrolled in is output.

To create a new Data Field, do the following:

1.In the Project Explorer, expand the Package where you want to add a Data


2.Right-click Data Fields and select New Data Field. The New Data Field
dialog is displayed.

3.The dialog displays the name of the Project and Package where the Data Field
will be created. If you want to change either, click the Project or Package
button to browse.

Data Fields can be created at either the Package level or at the Process level.
Creating them at the Package level enables them to be shared amongst
Processes. Select the Process check box and specify a Process if you want to
create the Data Field at the Process level.

Click Next.

4.Specify the Name, Type, and Initial Value of the Data Field and click Finish.

The Data Field that you created appears in the Project Explorer.
