    Default Disappearing memo field text!!!

    I hope someone can tell me what the hell's happened!!

    I was merrily entering some data into one of my databases this afternoon when I went to alter some text in a memo field. As soon as I moved the cursor out of the memo field the text reverted back to what it had been before I changed it. So, back in I went and altered it again then immediately saved the record. The text reverted again!

    So I created a new record and added some text to an empty memo field - as above it disappeared!!

    I the opened up a completely different database, changed some text in a memo field and the same thing happened again - it reverted back to the original text as soon as I left the field.

    I tried with the supplied "Invoice" application from Alpha, and added a memo field to one of the tables. Same thing!!

    I uninstalled and reinstalled Alpha 5 (version 4) about 6 times. Same thing!!!!

    What on earth is going on? I hope someone knows coz I'm stuck!!

    Thankis in advance.

    When you are getting odd results, the first step is to reboot the computer. Better yet, shut it down completely, waut a minnte and restart. That will clear all of the memory. The next step is to compact the database. However, since the problem is showing in AlphaSports, I would tend to think it is more of a memory issue.

    I solved the problem today. I installed the patch to v4.03 and "hey presto" everything is back to normal!

    Sound like you are NOT saving the Record, just saving the MEMO. I tried just saving the memo and the same thing happened. Saved the RECORD and all changes were saved.
