Fields are the primary elements of a library's structure. A field is a holder (container) for a unit of data, or value. Every field has a [[Field Type|'''''type''''']], a '''''name''''', and a '''''hint'''''. Fields may also have advanced parameters or display options, depending on the type of the field.

Field names are case-insensitive and may contain spaces. (ie:  "My Field Name", "MyfieldName")  In theory, any string of UTF-8 characters can make up a field name, though in practice, certain limitations may apply, such as using periods, percents, or at signs ('.', '%', or '@', My@FieldName) which may become problematic during expression evaluation in '''[[Calculation field|Calculation]]''' and '''[[JavaScript field|JavaScript fields]]''' and likely also in '''[[Triggers|trigger scripts]]''''''*Note:''' Programs that do not distinguish between uppercase and lowercase are said to be case-insensitive.
