FM - Global Gone Crazy :)
Posted on 2011-10-10
I have a global field, VACANCY::VacChangeMailInfo_G, that seems to have a life of its own. In the process of changing a script from running on open to scheduled, I must have missed something, because this field continues to fill in with data on open of the db. Even if I delete this info, it reappears. I've looked at the script; I've checked all File and Layout script triggers, and finally checked the DDR for all instances of VACANCY::VacChangeMailInfo_G where it might be set in the set field script step and cannot find it. The strange aspect is that one of the two vacancies it lists is not even a vacancy any longer, so where is this data being saved or drawn from?
The only thing I can think of is an auto enter in some field that fills in this global in question, but cannot find that either. Thanks for any suggestions or brainstorms.
P.S. - I have done a workaround in that I set this global to "" at the beginning of the scheduled script; however, globals are supposed to zero out on close and I've even deleted the info before closing out.
