Hi Shonz..... I am not a programmer nor do I play one in a television sitcom. But, I probably could. I know a little, and maybe I can guess the rest, or at least speculate a bit. Here goes.....
It appears that the Distance column is what is called a "flat file" while the Time and Calories Burned columns are "relational" to each other and to the Specific Activity column, as well. Changing the Time = changing of the Calories Burned, based on the Specific Activity selected
What is a Flat File?
is a good resource site to check out. There are additional links to tech terms there, as well
Regarding the Distance input: It can be left blank, no effect. If you put in a 12 digit number such as 444333222111 all that happens when you click save changes is the application inserts appropriate commas as delineators (444,333,222,111) Attempting to put text in there is a no no (you receive an error message)
I hope I helped a little. I know there are others on this board who can give a better explanation.
