  • The issue may be caused by a mis configuration in the data model.
  • In the code below, both Function & Comments have the same field name of "vfld3".  Each of the fields below needs to have a different variable field number;  in this case the comments field should probably be "vfld4".  However, our engineers should make the final determination.
  • When the change is made to the code, the data in the comments field will probably be lost, and the client will need to key them back in.
