vrf User Form Fields in Edit Mode

Question asked by VRFuser on Apr 21, 2005
Hi Tony,
         Have you added new display objects or are you using a program
written in a previous version?  I haven't investigated why but it seems
you need to create new ones in VEE 7 for that to work.

If you still have a problem, could you let me have a simple example and
I'll compare it with the operation I've observed.

Cheers,

Mike Watts
