    Default Adding new records stopped working in A5v12

    I've been running and using a particular form file and database file together for years (under Alpha 5), and have made no changes to either file... Suddenly, about a week ago, I go to add a new member to our group in this database, and the new record completely disappears???


    I have other databases and form files not related to this pair, and they still work fine, so I'm assuming the program software is still good.

    The version I'm using is Alpha 5, version 12. I've spent a few hours today googling and searching the A5 forums, etc. Nothing!

    Check your indices.

    Can you change to record number order and look at the last few records in a default browse?

    Reindex first.
    Are there any memo fields in the table?
