Making a mess of existing layouts
Operating system version
Description of the issue
I opened a database that had not been opened for a couple of months, and made what I thought was a normal entry, only to find it affect6ed a lot of fields that should not haven affected. It took sometime to realise that I had changed the contents of a foreign field. I normally do not allow that to happen but I could have been careless. It took a little time to realise that the entry field for the foreign field was missing - that has never ever happened before - deleting a field from a layout when in browse mode.
I still thought it could be my aberration when I opened a report layout on another file. This time I had opened it recently to install the new button Bar. The layout is now a travesty. I think its saveable but FM14 appears to be playing around with the layouts.
Steps to reproduce the problem
I have no idea what is causing the problem. Both the above files and their layouts have been stable for a number of years.
