Hi People !
I'm working on an adaptation of e FM 8 database.  It involves a portal, which has been modified from the original design.
In Layout mode everything looks just fine; in browse mode it seems to work fine, but in the middle of the portal there's a
<Field Missing> message.

Does anyone know what this means ?
Kind regards

    Accepted Solution

    it means there is a field box which is linked to nothing because its table or table occurence or field has been deleted since it had been put.
    you should check the original file to find out what it was if this happened after your modifications.
    it may be possible to work out what it was by having a look at the rest of the layout if some kind of logic is visible, but not without the file.
    post it somewhere if you'd like me to have a closer look.

    Thanks very much for your comments -- helped find the answer quickly.   There was a field hidden under the portal referenced to a table occurrence which had been deleted.   Sometimes those things seem tricky to find.   Thanks very much for your help
