On clicking Apply in the Edit Masterfield window, a pop up will display listing all changes made and the “Child” fields identified (fields which share the name of the Master Field in Datasets).

Clicking on the checkbox under the “To Be Linked” column will either link or un-link the Field in that dataset to the definition provided in the Master Field. Extreme care should be taken before pressing Update to ensure that unwanted changes aren’t applied to child datasets, in particular: changes to the Data Type of a field can cause issues. For example, while an Account Number might be a numeric field in a source system, it could be alphanumeric in another and changes that try to define an alphanumeric field to be numeric are likely to cause problems.
