If you update a <FieldReference> element, NSControl Update deletes and re-creates the notification class to which it corresponds. This includes dropping and re-creating the SQL Server tables used by this notification class.

Important  If you update a <FieldReference> element, any data existing in the original SQL Server tables is permanently deleted.

Important  If a <FieldReference> element is not included in the <Field> node, a <SqlExpression> element must be provided instead.</
