I'm working in v17 of MapInfo. Whilst entering attributes against existing records within a browser window, I noticed that now and then my just-entered attributes would disappear.
To replicate, do the following:
The text does not always disappear, but often enough! The text can also disappear from multiple fields at times. To avoid this, I ensure that after I have entered the text I click into a cell of a different record of the same table. The text I have entered is then saved properly, and there is no longer a danger that it will disappear.
Does anyone else experience this?
Yes that happens to me and my users as well. It is not limited to version 17. We’ve had it happen in 12.0, 12.5, and 16 as well. As you say, if you move out of the cell then save, your change will be saved. Another way to ensure your change is saved is to select the Map window and then save.
Yes I have experienced this in 17.0 and it was resolved with the 17.0.1 patch. It is listed as one of the bug fixes in the release notes for this patch.You can go to PRO>Updates to get this patch.
I have only noticed this in v17.0, but that might be because I haven't done any extensive editing of attributes for a while. I will download the patch. Thanks Nick and Joshua.
