Hello all,

I have a problem wend I access my file from FMS8v4. The problem is the following: I have a text global field in a table that is not related to any other table in the file. If I open the file local from my C: and edit the field the next time I open the file the changes don’t disappear. However If I open and edit the field and then close the file from FMS8v4 the data in the field disappear

Please help.

Global field behavior:

1. Local or Peer to Peer

Populates with the value of the last user to close the file

2. Server

Resets to the original value each time the file is reopened

Work Around

1. Shared Global Values

Create a table with one record which is set by the global field when the user closes the file and script that the global be set by the record at startup.

2. User Global Values

Create a user table with preferences to be set to the global fields on startup.
