Edit DB after 4.0 upgrade

Postby mac » Thu Jun 25, 2009 7:37 am

I just recently upgraded and on some of my database files now when I click on a record to edit it or even create a new record in the db it just brings up a blank screen. I am sure I do not have to use forms because I did not on the other db that work as in previous release. Is there a setting that I am missing?

Hi Mac,

It sounds like these databases have forms defined that are blank. You didn't mention what platform you are using (ie, Palm OS, Windows Mobile, etc) so please respond and provide that info.

Here's what I'd do:
Go to DB Properties for that database
Click on Forms
See if any forms are defined.
Open the form and see if it's blank.

If it is, you can delete the form or go to the form properties and uncheck it being the start form for your device. Then you should see the edit record screen come up again!

That fixed the problem. Thought I had looked in there before. Working right now off XP to a Palm 515 but just got a IPod Touch and will be putting all this on that. Wish me luck.
