SOLVED - Field is defined to require a value but is not available on this layout
Get error message :
"Sols code is defined to require a value, but is not available on this layout. Use another layout to assign a value to this field."
Basically was using FM6 with a set of databases i built using fm6.
Upgraded to FM 10 (not advanced) all ok.
I have 3 sets of databases - solicitors - defendents - invoices
All have relationships set ok.
All works fine. On solicitors i have sols info address etc.. then i have a portal showing defendents info. Many defendents to each solicitor.
On an existing solicitors i can add a new defendent on the next portal line. This creates a new defendent details in the defendent file etc..
Now when i create a new solicitor and enter sols details all ok. However when i enter anything in any of the portal fields it throws up the error notice (seeabove).
I have even tried exporting the sols file, opening and recreating the file & relationships but still get the same error.
Please help anyone.
LOL - i solved it.
What it was, the field sols code in the defendents file was set to existing value - all ok now
