modify autolinked table-add global field to form?

modify autolinked table-add global field to form?

modify autolinked table-add global field to form?


We recently purchased the vba modifier for GP 10, I am a complete novice to this so bear with me. We have a form that was created using the modifier and a custom table. This form updates the custom table. I have to add a column to the table and put the field on the form. I have added the field to the table and am very confused as to how I get the field to show up when modifying the form. I thought it was autolinked, does autolink (which I have no idea how to do) would auto update the global fields available to add to the form. If not...how do I make it available?   

RE: modify autolinked table-add global field to form?

Hi Zarkon4

Modifier cannot add new Dexterity windows.

Is this a VBA UserForm?

Or is this a new custom form created by a Dexterity developer that you are trying to modify?

In the modifier you can only add fields to a window from the autolinked table. However, depending on how the code is written this may or may not work.  

Autolink only works if the copy to table and copy from table Dexterity commands are used in the code.

If the field is not being displayed and saved, you will need to add VBA code to handle that for you.

There are samples on my blog to look at

Thanks! I did figure out we have to use dexterity and am finding that it is very difficult to find training materials on it. I did find something for version 9 that should get me going.
