- Data Macros are different from our regular web macros…and Data Macros allow us to respond to events…that are happening in our data.…We have three specific Data Events we'll look at…and when we choose Data Macro we get…an entirely different set of options in our Action Catalog…as you can see here in the task pane.…Let's take a deeper dive…into Data Events and Data Macros.…There are three things that you'll do with a table.…
First you might add a record to it…and that event is called On Insert.…Imagine that you're thinking about rows in a table…and you're inserting a new row…whenever you add a new record.…So just before that record commits,…just before it's inserted into the table…there is an On Insert event that runs.…Or you might want to edit one of the particular records…in your table, that's called an Update.…So you have an existing record, you've opened it,…and just before the changes are committed…the On Update event runs.…
The third event is called On Delete…and it's pretty self-explanatory,…you wanna get rid of a record, delete a row from the table.…
