Script for adding a field to a layout?

Hi all,


Does anyone know of a way of making sure all of the fields you have in a table are present in the layout?


I have a script where I'm adding a field to the table...


Execute SQL [ ODBC Data Source: “Test_Database”; Calculated SQL Text: "ALTER TABLE Test_CreateNewFieldwithScript ADD " & Test_CreateNewFieldwithScript::g_VDF & " VARCHAR" ]

[ No dialog ]

Allow User Abort [ Off ]

Set Field [ Test_CreateNewFieldwithScript::g_TableFieldList; FieldNames(Get(FileName); "Test_CreateNewFieldwithScript") ]

Commit Records/Requests

[ No dialog ]


where Test_CreateNewFieldwithScript is the name of the table, and g_VDF relates to global field on my layout that I'm using to nominate the name of the new field.


But now I need to make sure the new field is being added to the layout, I was expecting it to just appear but it doesn't.


Any ideas?
