Specifies the field that identifies the location of index data and provides default and literal (constant) index values. ACIF supports these types of fields for enhanced indexing:
- Trigger field
- This field is based on the location of a trigger string value.
- Constant field
- This field provides the actual index value that is stored in the database.
- Transaction field

- Mask field
