<FieldType> values must conform to SQL Server data types. For more information about SQL Server data types, see "Using Data Types" in SQL Server Books Online.

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

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