    Default Alpha Five Action Script. Script Create

    Does anyone know why this message intermittenly appears on a form I have created? The form works OK. It is used to collect data and print invoices. A "clear fields" button on the form will make it go away. It seems to appear on a whim.

    Again the message reads:

    Alpha Five Action Script. Script Create

    Default Close Form

    The button I use to close the form is called "close form" and it does just that. The "clear form" button clears the values in variables and resets the values in calculated fields.

    Neither of these two buttons cause the message to appear. It just pops up indiscriminately on "line 1" which is also a variable. When I click on "clear form" it goes away.

    I just want to know what the message means to Alpha5.

    Thanks for your interest. Deb

    Deb, I understand the need to clear variables, but resetting values in calculated fields shouldn't be allowed. Whether you're talking about table fields that have been set as calculated values in field rules, or you're talking about calculated values you've defined in the form, I'd leave them along when the form closes.
