    Default Set Variable(s) to Field Values (External Table)

    Hi

    A5v5
    Windows XP Home SP1

    When I use the 'Set Variable(s) to Field Values (External Table)' script genie to define new global or shared variables, why don't the variables then appear in the variables list on the menu bar?

    Hi Alan,

    How are getting to 'Set Variable(s) to Field Values (External Table)' ?

    The variable becomes available in the fields list to use on the Form or other layout.

    What are you trying to achieve?

    I do this a lot and have noticed that you have to open the form and run it once to make all the variables visible in the drop down menu list when in design mode.

    they won't appear until you actually run the script. when you the run script the variables are created. before you run the script the variables do not exist
