Yes, indeed. Enter those properties in the IB_Connection or IBODatabase - property names are the same as in the query, but you need to add table qualifiers, e.g. in FieldsDisplayLabel,


You can even do it for domains if you want. You will need some entries in FieldEntryTypes - look that up in the help for IB_Connection.

Take out the entries in the individual queries, unless you want the query settings to override the global settings.
