Missing info in FieldType
Operating system version
Mac OSX 10.6.4
Description of the issue
The Design function "FieldType ( fileName ; fieldName )" does not report that a field is defined as a global in this six instances:
Global Calculation ContainerField
Global Calculation DateField
Global Calculation NumberField
Global Calculation TextField
Global Calculation TimeField
Global Calculation TimeStampField
Notice in the screen dump below that line 2-7 (Non-Global fields) have the same FieldType response as the blue section with 6 lines displaying Global field further down. The blue lines should have included a "Global" in the FieldType response.
Without a "Global" in the FieldType response it is impossible for a script - as an automatic process - to determine if a field with one of the mentioned 6 definitions is a global field or not. Only a human being can decide - because he or she can visually inspect "Option" in the Manage Database for
Steps to reproduce the problem
Use FieldType ( fileName ; fieldName ) to a field, which is defined as mentioned above.
