Value List error
I have a layout that has 3 Value list without names. I cannot remove, rename or change them. How can I fix this?
What do you see when you enter layout mode and double-click the value list formatted field?
I repeat my question. A value list is an object that you can attach to a field on a layout. It's behavior is controlled by the field/control | setup... dialog. I'm trying to get more detail so as to understand the issue you are having.
Can you select one of these objects and bring up the field/control | setup... dialog?
Can you find them in Manage | Value lists?
What exactly do you see on the layout? (value lists can be radio buttons, check boxes, drop down lists or pop up menus.)
If you are looking at a layout object, can you click on them and delete them?
If not, have you checked to see if the object is locked?
While in layout mode, can you click on them and delete them from the layout?
Manage Value Lists has both edit and delete options. Do they work for these three value lists? If not, your file may be damaged. If you have a back up copy, check it. If you don't or the back up copy shows the same problem, try recovering the file.
Please read carefully.
From your posts, there was a lot of missing info and that's why I'm asking questions. You initially referred to deleting value lists from a layout and that led to questions about whether or not you are trying to modify a value list, the field it's attached to or something else. We've now narrowed a few things down and I'll repeat the part of my previous post that seems to apply:
