    Default Summary fields with Embedded Browse

    I have embedded browse tables on a form and was trying to use summary fields to show "total payments" for the child group. It works great until I advance to the next record on the parent form. The summary field never changes until I hit a child record with a value that calculates the summary field. I've try "clear field value" for the actions on this field and even that doesn't reset it. Any thoughts?

    Hi Deb,
    Try "OnFetch" and "refresh display" in action scripting.

    Hope this helps.

    Russ,

    Thanks for the response but refresh display did not solve the problem. I'll keep at it and try to find a work around but I think it's a bug.

    Do you have the latest patch?
    These are working for me as far as I can tell. I didn't spend a lot of time on it but checked sum fields and they seem fine. I haven't added or changed records. Do yours foul up in all cases or just on new record?

    Russ
