Accessing Data Function Parameters

I had one of those moments recently, where a dialog box I’ve stared at for years presented something new to me.  In this case, it was the Settings button in the Data Table Properties dialog.  Now, this button will be grayed out for all tables except on-demand tables.  At least, that is what I thought.  As I scrolled thru my tables, the box appeared active for a table I knew was not configured on-demand.  Rather, a data function built the table.  Clicking on it then pulled up the Edit Parameters dialog.  When investigating tables, it’s helpful to be able to access data function parameters from Data Table properties.

Clicking on Settings pulls up the Edit parameters dialog for any table created by a data function.
This allows the user to access data function parameters without going thru the Data Functions dialogs.
