Title: Opening text files (forms) in BDL
Post by: Candy M. on July 23, 2022, 03:25:17 am
Our environment is 3.20.

I am working with support on this.

So I have 2 form files where I changed the TITLE and COMMENT on a column in the form.   The .42f shows the right TITLE and COMMENT, but when I run my app again, they show as unchanged.

So support sent me the identical .42f for one of the forms, but with a different name.    I renamed it to my form's name and now when I run the app, everything shows as it should.   Now the two .42f's are identical, I just renamed the one sent to me.

Is there some hidden character in a text file that doesn't show when you do a diff.

I know this may not make sense, but it has me puzzled.

Thanks,

I figured it out.   I was able to figure out why TITLE and COMMENT where not changing.   We keep a database of all our forms in our application and I needed to reload the forms.
