Default

The DEFAULT parameter allows a standard value to be defined, should the user not enter a specific value. A DEFAULT value can be defined for a domain or a field. The default value predefined in the domain, can be overridden by the default value entry in the column/field definition following this domain.

In IBExpert it can be specified when creating a new table and fields or when creating a domain.
