-In the CERL Thesaurus, complex fields are far more common than simple fields. Complex fields are fields that consist of a number of other fields. You may think about them as sub-forms of the overall form. By default these sub-forms are collapsed and onyl show a few data elements in one line. You will recognize them by a little downward pointing triangle in front of the fields content:+In the CERL Thesaurus, complex fields are far more common than simple fields. Complex fields are fields that consist of a number of other fields. You may think about them as sub-forms of the overall form. By default these sub-forms are collapsed and only show a few data elements in one line. You will recognize them by a little downward pointing triangle in front of the fields content:

 The sub-form has a grey-ish background, so it's easiliy visible which data elements belong to the complex field and where the complex fields ends and the "​normal"​ form continues. The sub-form has a grey-ish background, so it's easiliy visible which data elements belong to the complex field and where the complex fields ends and the "​normal"​ form continues.
  
-Complex fields might be **repeatable**. In addition to that each data element within the complex field might be repeatable as well (i.e. you could have more than one heading field and each of those could contain more than one first name). To create a new, empty complex field click the blue + icon at the bottom of the grey sub-form - to repeat just one data element from the sub-form (within the same sub-form), click the blue + icon directly next to that element (pretty simple at the second glance).+Complex fields might be **repeatable**.

 As with the main form the **order of fields** within the sub-form is the order by which the data elements are stored in the record. Sometimes the order of information does not matter at all, and sometimes (e.g. when talking about the various parts of a name) it's of the utmost importance. As with the main form the **order of fields** within the sub-form is the order by which the data elements are stored in the record.

-An important feature of the CERL Thesaurus is recording of the relationship between two or more entities in the form of links between their records. This could be a person'​s record linked to those of their parents or a printers record linked to the record of the place where they had their printing shop. +An important feature of the CERL Thesaurus is recording of the relationship between two or more entities in the form of links between their records.

 Fields that may contain links are marked by a yellow-ish/​orange button with a looking glass. To establish a link, click on the looking glass button and enter a search term into the search box that will pop up.  Fields that may contain links are marked by a yellow-ish/​orange button with a looking glass.
