The Add New Object window can do more than just insert a single object. If there’s a spouse first name entered, then the spouse object will also be inserted. The two objects will automatically have a Married/Spouse connection and the spouse will share the primary object’s address.
To add a new object, select the Add New icon in the Main Task Toolbar. The Create New Object window, illustrated in Figure 3-1, will appear and it’s here that new objects are entered. By default, the new object will be set to the object type and region currently selected in the Main Filter.
Note: Not every Object Type can have objects; some Object Types exist solely to organize sub-types. For example, typically the Donor Object Type can’t have donors. Any donors must belong to either the Person sub-type, Group sub-type, or a further sub-type.
To streamline entering new objects, the Add New Object window has the most common data fields, but not every field. If the object being added has data not on the Add New form, that’s ok. Once the common data is entered, click Save and Open and the Object Editor tab will open for the new object. The rest of the data can be added in the full Object Editor tab.
Most organizations use a standard numbering scheme of some type to uniquely identify people, projects, parts, machines, etc. If this is true in your organization then you may enter an Object Code. If the entered Object Code is not unique then an error may be generated.
Optionally, if the Object Code is left blank, the database will assign an Object Code based on the new object’s Object Type and Region.
Once the Add New Object window is complete, click the “Save” button to write the changes to the database. “Save and Open” saves the new object and opens it in an Object Editor tab for further work.
 Objects may also be imported into TejonDb using the ETL views. Typically this occurs during a migration process.
 This depends of course on the specific organization configuration.
 While it is highly suggested then Object code be unique, some organizations have legacy overlapping object codes so this can be modified in the configuration.
