R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

(OP)
I went through the help files and various FAQ's and couldn't find anything that will help.  I've tried changing the alias, the server, well, pretty much everything that is possible to change in a @Command([Compose] formula...can you guys help me out on this?

Thanks in advance...

RE: R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

Are you trying to say that you get the error message:
"Cannot locate form"

when you try to run the @Command([Compose])

Sort of, it's behind an action button on my main view called New Document.  

RE: R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

Check that the name of the form you call corresponds to a form of that name and alias in the db you are calling.
Remember that form names are case-sensitive, and that hidden form names need to include the round brackets when calling them.

Pascal.

(OP)
I've checked everything, I've tried using Alias' and using the form name...it still gives me.  And I'm not accessing hidden forms.

RE: R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

what is the actual command you are putting in the button?
This works for me:

@Command([Compose];"Leave Request")

RE: R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

(OP)
@Command([Compose];"frm1") doesn't work as well as @Command([Compose];"";"frm1") as well as using the real form name in both instances.  Just curious if anyone has had the same problem and came up with a solution.

RE: R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

the case is correct, when you look in the FORMS view you see a form named:

frm1

just like that, not

Frm1

or

Frm 1

(OP)
Positive...I've checked everything a few times over hence why I'm so frustrated...

RE: R5 - cannot locate form...how do you fix that?

Maybe you have a design corruption.
Does a fixup do anything ? When you open a document based on that form, do you see it correctly ?
Have you tried erasing the formula entirely, replacing with "", saving, exiting Notes, restarting Notes and putting the formula back in ?
Sometimes the code gets corrupted. When I have a Hide/When that does not work as it should, I often do this (I call it a "code reset"). Most of the time, it makes a difference.
Of course, Hide/When is not the same as formula code, but you wouldn't be breaking anything if you tried it.

Pascal.

uninstal and reinstall the designer, easy - but good,keep a copy of you database berfore.. ;)
