Apologies if i have posted in the wrong place as i am new to this site. I am currently working on a database integration project to enable us captured data in an ERP system (Atlas Peoplesoft ERP) which was previously not captured. the end objective is to enable the generation of reports. Chartfields have been mentioned as a possible way to do this by modifying these Chartfields.

Can I ask:
1. What is a Chartfield?
2. Can It be modified? and if yes what are the implications if any.

Thank you and look forward to a response.
