Subject Re: Creating dynamic field, but strip the type indicator postfix from the name
Date Fri, 20 May 2016 23:46:33 GMT
Why is this important? I'm failing to see how this helps in
"making the queries simpler to form". What's the difference
between making a query

If it's a display issue, it seems like the display app could simply strip
anything after the terminal underscore from the display...
