    Default Deleted Field Objects still referencing in form

    I copied and pasted a form to a new set and deleted several fields not relevant to the set. But when I open the form it has a series of errors in the trace window saying there are field objects referencing non-existent fields (i.e. the tables that are not part of the modified set). But these fields ARE DELETED in my new form. In one case I deleted an entire tab of a tabbed subform where these offending field references were originally contained. I've looked over the entire form, including moving objects just to make sure something wasn't buried and I know I'm clean!

    Why does Alpha still think these fields are on my form when they aren't?

    Janet,
    Not sure why it does it, but I had a similar problem in V4. You should try compacting the database to see if the references are dropped. Beyond that, I don't know how to get rid of the unwanted references. I eventually redesigned the form.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem with a form, and I think compacting the tables is a good idea I didn't try yet. However, I wanted to bring to your attention another possible culprit: calulated fields or scripts referencing the fields. It could be a hassle combing through all of them.

    All the best,

    TR
