Description: This is weird and not sure if it is me missing something but i have a global field on a table and when i access the database on android with web direct and place the global field 3 times on a layout I can enter different values into each field. Being a global field you should not be able to do this. Is this a bug? I discovered the problem because even when there is just one field on the layout populated with data, an if statement in a script testing for a value says the field is empty even when there is data in the field.

How to replicate

Workaround (if any)
