Refreshing choices in a dialog list
Posted on 2002-04-17
I'm having an issue while trying to develop a Lotus Notes database. I was wondering if you have seen this error in the past or if anyone knows of a way to resolve this issue.
I have created a form, Job. Within this form I have created a field of type dialog list. In the field properties, I have selected to use a formula to generate values for this field. The formula is as follows: @DbColumn("";"":"";"All Programs";1). This formula retrieves all the values in the 1st column of the All Programs view of the current database.
I also checked the box that says: refresh choices on document refresh. This is what is not working.
Within this Job form, I have a button which allows someone to create a new Program document. When I create a new program, save it, return to my Job, and refresh the job document: my choices are not updated in this program list field. I have tried multiple different options, including adding a button which refreshes the All program view and the current document, but it does not refresh. Even if I close the Job document and reopen it, the choices are not updated. It only seems to refresh when I reopen the database. Any clue why this does not work?
Thanks in advance for you help!
