You can override a repository field in a lot of ways. One thing you can not do is use an Edit Word against a field if it already has and Edit Code. If you try to use override to assign an EditWord in a specific context for a field which already has and Edit Code assigned the editor tells you the following ...
Field XXXXXXXX has been assigned both an edit code of x and end Edit word of xxxxxxxxxx. The Edit Word will be ignored.
I would like to suggested the following enhancement. Allow the setting of an Edit Code of none in an override.
Override Field(#std_numl) Decimals(2) Edit_Code(None) Edit_Word('$ , , , , 0 -')
So I can override the Edit Code and use the Edit Word. The repository already implies this in the wording EditMask and includes the selection of possible values together.
