The Dictionary Tab

The Dictionary tab is used to set up the properties for agreements. Agreements will be discussed in more detail in the section "BizTalk Management Desk" later in this chapter, but in simple terms, an agreement is used to define the rules for passing documents between two corporations. Using agreements, pipelines can be created that pass documents back and forth between two servers. (We will discuss pipelines in more detail later in this chapter.) The Dictionary tab defines the location of the agreement that is used for a field.
