Custom ADD form defaulting in values


Well Known Member
I have a custom form for managing LOTN information.

When in ADD mode, the form will default values in for 2 elements, LOTN and LOT1 (memo field). No matter what I do, I cannot get it to stop adding these values in when I do not set a value or set the FC LOTN filed to blank (see image attached).

Any ideas on what could be forcing this value into these fields?

Essentially, when in ADD mode, I just display the form elements without setting any values. Nothing special going on here that I can tell.

I am getting this on another application when using LOTN as well so whatever fixes this will fix that one as well.

What is interesting is that the P41024, Item Location Revisions, form when adding a new entry does NOT show a default value. Looking at the ER of that form shows NOTHING unique in handling these data elements. Which has me really confused.

If you need further information, please let me know.

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Hi radi8,

LOTN has a Next Number default in DD. To disable this in your application go to LOTN field -> right button click -> Overrides -> click Data Dictionary Overrides -> and check Next Numbering in Disable group box to avoid default value.

I hope help you.
