Subject: DCT flag in record reference manual

Hi all
i have the following question.When reading the record reference manual i can see that epics fields are flagged DCT=no.
I would like to make sure that I understand correctly something here:
1. VAL field of output records such as ao are marked DCT=no, does it mean that i can't have in a db file 
record (ao,"mypv")
{
        field(VAL, "12")
  }
and that the proper way to do that would be 
record (ao,"mypv")
{
        field(DOL, "12")
field(OMSL,"supervisory") ->if it is a initial value
field(OMSL,"closed_loop") ->if it is a constant
  }

2.TSE field is also marked DCT=no. So again what does it mean? and if it is not advised to use in db file then what is the proper way to implement it? via TSEL field?

thanks for your feedback
Lana
