Category BASIC: Syntax (110)
Description attribute-defining items that may reside in the dictionary of any file. If no attribute-defining items are explicitly requested in an Access report, the "default" fields display automatically.

Default attribute items have numeric item-ids starting with 1. These item-ids are used by Access verbs as output specifications if no other output specifications are given, including a defined output-macro on the file-defining item.

The numeric item-ids must be consecutive; that is, in order to have the third attribute list by default, attribute items 1 and 2 must exist, even if they are not needed for the listing. The attribute items for attributes that are not needed for listings can be given a d/code of "x".
