Currency amounts are stored in the logical database as pairs of fields. The first field contains the amount and the second field the currency or unit. Although the fact that the logical database itself always ensures that the (amount, unit/currency) pair contains the correct values means that it is not necessary to know which reference fields belong to which amount fields when maintaining an InfoSet over a logical database, in the case of an InfoSet that is not based on a logical database, the InfoSet itself has to ensure that the values in the amount and unit fields belong together (for example, by reading another table). This means that the correspondence between the amount fields and unit fields has to be known.

The reference field is always displayed in the lower right box for changing field texts.
