How can I save newly entered data in a dialog list field?  I see the new entry that is not on the "already created list" in a view but when I go to a new form, I can not find the newly entered entry on the dialog list.

    You have to save the keywords into a document and list in view.. then use dblookup/dbcolumn to populate keywords

    Scenario 1:
    if you have pre - existing list of values in the list field and not using lookup's or dbcolumn
    create a new field.
    Update this field with that new value and also the list field.
    and then use @unique(newfield : "your existing list of values")

    Scenario 2:
    If u are fetching from View using Dblookup and dbcolumn then
    create a new field
    Update this field with the new value and also the list field.
    then in the code for the list field, use
    res:=@dbcolumn (....);
