also, which device do you have and which iOS are you running.

The information will help Brian troubleshoot the issue.

I found with one of my databases that I had to go to every record and edit to get it updated.
I ended up inserting a blank space in to the end of a name field.
I only had 150 records in that database but made a view that only showed records where the cell phone field had data. Dropped me to 80 records.
Later as I added more cell numbers that edit generated the new field data.

i downloaded your database, installed it on my iPhone, added a record and tried it. Worked just fine on my iPhone 6+, iOS 8.4, running the latest HanDBase.

I also installed it to my iPad running iOS 9 and it worked there too.

Have you tried shutting down the iPhone, turning it back on and try again?

curtterp:

One thing I tried to explain is that yes, it does create new records properly; but this tool is being installed into a db with existing records. It's in those already existing records the result field has only the phone number without the sms://

Hi Bob,

Adding new records worked well for me, as it did for Curt.

Modifying existing records worked as well.

Please try this small switch to see if it makes a difference on your iPhone:

- for the combine field, change the option to save on record saving instead of record edit

Does this make any difference?

Brian,

I applied your recommended change, with no results.

I hope a fix can be found, otherwise I would have to add "sms://" to each record - twice (there being two phone number fields for the tool to connect to), making a minimum of over 2,000 individual times that sms:// would have to be entered by hand.
