Clone Mystery in FM Pro 9
I have been extending the capabilities of a school database by development work
on an sparsely populated copy while the original is being used. The program has several
main layouts, contacts, families, activies etc. selected by a group of buttons working
on the Radiobutton system - only one works at a time.
When I attempted to populate my improved copy I made a clone and then imported
records from the working original.I found that the clone had lost access to one of the
layouts - that for contacts. Button pushing from the home layout did nothing. I repeated
this attempt twice more - still no access to the contacts layout when working with a clone.
So, made a full copy of my development program and used the Records>Delete all Records
action to delete all the records in the main layouts. Effectively making a clone the slow way.
This time I could populate the contacts with records by importing.
Has anyone else struck this?
