DD custom item's definition change

DD custom item\'s definition change

I have a problem which is driving me nuts for past two days.
I had a custom data item in a custom table.This item was date type.
I had a business view related to this table and an application too.

Here comes the scary part.....
After designing the application I realized that it should be a string column.So I changed this field in DD to a string column.
I know you might be thinking it was a dumb thing to do but I had no choice.

what I did after doing this:
1)Regenerated the table-column looks a string column.
2)Re -attached table to business view-column looks a string in field properties.
3)Regenerated the view.
4)Reattached the view to application again.
5)Deleted the column from application and reinserted it.
6)Deleted dddict.*,ddtext.* and glbtbl.* and loged back into One World.

Problem is -When I run the application it appears as a string field but does not accept blank entries.But in that field blank entries are allowed.Gives "Error Unknown to translation API"

On other computer when I checked it out, it still show up as a date field in application.

It looks like I am missing something here.

Please Help...

Re: DD custom item\'s definition change

Nimisha,

a couple of questions:

1) Are you in fact able to enter non-date characters into this field and save / recall?

2) What "Class" is the DD item assigned to? Is it still a "Date" class?

3) I don't understand your statement "On other m/c when I checked it out, it still show up as a date field in application.". Can you please tell me what "m/c" stands for?

Rather than try to figure this one out ... if you're really pressed for time delete the column from the table, delete the DD Item, and then re-add the DD Item, the table column, and repeat your other steps.

Re: DD custom item\'s definition change

Thanks for replying.

1)Yes we can save and bring back string value.Works fine if field has some value but if field is blank/null it gives error while saving.

2)Class field comes up as blank in DD.

I too thought of deleting that field from table and redesign the business view.But I think in this case I will have to design this application again.

Sorry for confusion m/c is for machine/computer.
I just corrected the original post.

Re: DD custom item\'s definition change

I have fixed this problem by always inserting a default value in this field instead of blank.
Please consider this as resolved issue.
