Hello,

I'm attempting to be lazy and whip up a form for data enty. It's a one-to-many form with a parent and child table. I use the Wizard to set it up and when I run it and click on the grid (child table) the data in it disappears. Sometimes, if I tab into the grid from a text box it will work okay...but as soon as I try outside of VFP it disappears regardless of how I get to the grid.

I have just recently installed VFP 9, along with SP 1 and am new to this version. Could I be missing some components or something else

Help is much appreciated! Thanks

Wizards are a way to keep one busy. If you want to be lazy forget wizards.

The laziest way I've found to whip up VFP-9 forms have been simple form builders and/or designers: OOP-Samples, tastrade, foundation-classes, wizards, and other 'one-trick-ponies' often contain mind-boggling code and references to remote VFP classes that *ensnare* those (like myself) professing to be wise...

(Then there's Access ...)

Thanks for the help. I ended up recreating the tables and they seem to work fine now, so there must have been something weird there.
