To Display Items Value:

 

1. Click on the Item Editor button on the toolbar btn_item_editor_003

 

2. Click on the relevant row of the Value column (ie. one of the fields you want to combine with another)

 

3. Click on the ellipse button btn_ellipse_002, to change the column value that will be displayed on the web pages.

 

4. You can add a data value in the page item by double clicking on it e.g. If you want to display FirstName and LastName in the same column, you double click on the LastName field, or click on the Add Field button ( btn_add_field_001 ). Then click OK  You can insert the space between the two name fields to make the result more readable.
