Working with table layouts

An ACL table layout describes the structure and content of a data source, and specifies how to connect to the data source. It describes the data in each field, and specifies how to display and print the information. Table layouts also allow you to define the fields you want to analyze.

For more information about how table layouts relate to ACL tables generally, see The structure of ACL tables.
