  • Adding a checkbox to an existing form

    I need to add a new field (checkbox) to an existing form. I created the new column in the database and added the new field to the form... but it won't save. It doesn't give any errors, but the data is not saved to the database.

    If I create a new form from the same table, I have no problems.

    How do I get an existing form to use a new field?

    You added a field manually? That's just for help-fields not connected to the database directly. The correct approach after altering your database is for forms:

    go to application -> synchronize. This will update your fieldsettings.
    then go to edit fields and move the fields to the position on your screen.

    for grids: alter the sql statement by adding the new fields and save.
    then go to edit fields and move the fields to the position on your screen.

    hope this helps.
