I've put some of the variable declarations in a loop that exits when the value is not blank, and it's working around this behavior.
That won't work for everything, though. I wish I understood what's happening.
Also this happens on both Mac and Windows clients, so it's not just my machine. So bizarre.
Some of the retries are only 1 or 2, but some are more than 100!
Why would it take so long for a field value to be available once a record is loaded?
Thanks you for your post.
Are you able to replicate this issue in a new file and would it be possible to receive a sample with directions to reproduce?
I look forward to your response.
This appears to have been addressed in the v5 update. I haven't been able to reproduce it since then.
