Date Time: This is used if you want your custom fields to have values in the date and time format.

Fractional Number: This is used if you want your custom fields to have values in the numbers with decimal values.

Lookup Value: This is generally used if you have a list of values that are more frequently used. When this is selected, you will see a drop-down menu to choose your custom field values.
