Record not locking

Recommended Posts

Hai guys,

As we all know when 2 users are on same record and try editing a same field at the same time causes record locking [color:red]BUT editing a global field at the same time is not locking the record and changes made is not saved of either user, why?

Because each user can have a different entry in any global field. That is one of their main differences from a standard field.



ps also you say that the changes made to the global fields are not saved. That is because global fields will revert to the data that was stored in them when they were last opened as a single user.

If you need to store this data create a table and store it in a regular field and then load it into your global when needed
