Maybe a closing or opening script is resetting the field. Is this DB on a server or standalone? If on a server the global field will be reset to the default setting initially set up when the DB was hosted.
Tell us a little more about label_count. What does it do, and what do you need to retain.
I was having the same issue, on a server,,, that a bummer, I use the global field for a labels, is there a way around this?
@CC. I think the global field will use the value put into the database before it was served. I think you have to take down the database, set the fields, and serve it back up. I emphasize "I think" because I'm not sure and cant test it.
You are 100% right, I tested it.. that is a bummer, since that may change on the fly, but now that I know, I will make a work around...
Thanks again for your help......
