Hi,
I've seen in the symbolic map that the attribute field redefines the flag field on the input map, which implies both these fields use the same storage position. The flag field is set whenever a user erases the contents of a data entry field and the map is received, while the attribute field indicates the behavior and characteristics of the data entry field. If this is the case, how could the attribute field redefine the flag field since they are unrelated

Probably because the fields are unrelated, allowing them to be used -- at different points in the process -- for totally different things?
