What happened to the lists and the zzsys_list table as discussed in #15 of the video tutorials?

Rolf,

You are watching videos for version 2 not 3.

Yes, that's true. Nonetheless, this video tutorial introduced me to the idea of having one table to hold all lists for dropdowns instead of creating one table for each of the dropdowns. The value of this concept is fairly general and still applies to v3. So, I'm just curious, was it no longer necessary for the internal working of nubuilder to have this table or did this information move elsewhere?

Rolf,

Having a system table called zzsys_lists that others can edit, makes it much harder to update and maintain than creating your own list table that won't get over written.
