Global field data disapears
I'm using a global text field as sort of a to-do list in FM 11, However when I exit the application and re-open it the data disapears. Any suggestions?
If you are the client of a hosted database, (You used open remote to connect to the file), this is expected behavior for global fields. By design, changes to the values of global fields are not visible to other users and are not retained when you close the file on a hosted database. That way, global fields can be used by all users without their edits interfering with each other.
There are several different ways you can make a change to a global field that will "stick".
