    Default Loss of Screen Prompts and ability to view data

    I have a 5 tab subform with regions displayed on three of the tabs. When I enter a record (new or change) the fields on the subforms allow me to enter data, but when I leave the fields the data disapears -- only to reappear when I press F10 to save the file. In addition, wile I am entering data the last two lines of the screen (the menu and the prompts) are blank. The too return when I save the record. I have tried this on several machines, all running Windows 98SE and the problem remains. I have also created a less complex form and the problem seems to go away. Any suggestions?

    This is a bug that first appeared in ver 6.2. It happens whenever you have a many->one relationship anywhere in your set design and also use tabbed subforms.

    I wrote a message about this years ago and never received a reply. It makes versions above 6.011 unusable for me.

    You probably won't like this suggestion but... a possible (painful) way around this is to write a TRIGGER script that executes an {F10} to save and then C to go back into the change mode. You then call this script in your field rules for each field you have a problem with as an Exit Trigger. I beleive it will work as a way around the problem but if you have a lot of fields it might be a pain. Good Luck.
