    Enter the name you want the field to be called in the 'Column Name' box. Then choose the type from the radio buttons below that.

    Optionally add a discription, and choose if the box MUST contain information to submit a new/changed item.

    You can also optionaly set a default value if required.

    You should be able to create most columns you want using the types available to you. If you definatly need something different from that you would need to write some custom code to create that type, or purchase some code someone has already written that does whan you need.
