unable to enter value in field on only some records
Posted on 2004-08-30
i have a database that has 16 fields in it. i have one field defined as "marked selection" that i put a value of 1 in when i run a global find on the records from a script. my problem is that on some records i am unable to enter a value into this field. example: i run a search and 11 records are displayed. only 5 records have the marked selection field with a value of 1. while in the browse mode i am unable to manually put a value in this field for the records that do not have a value of 1 inserted by my script. i get a message
"before typing, press tab or click in a field, or choose new record menu command"
what could be causing this problem.
