5 Replies and 1499 Views How to find where a data source field is being used?  1499  5 Started by  TBonney When designing a new UI for a screen, is there a way to determine where a field is already being used as a data source We have an older modified version of a PO20 that has the xref-vendor on it, but it does not appear to be in the current PO20 list of available data source field values. Can I find where it might be being used presently, and whether it is being used elsewhere or not, is there a way that I can 'add' it to the PO20 so it can be used here Thank you.

1 Replies and 921 Views Build in a delay  921  1 Started by  Terry P Anyone have a suggestion on how to build in a one to two second delay in a form's script Basically I have a user enter a parameter, then fireoff a Process Flow. The Process Flow only takes a second to run, but I want to make sure and give it enough time to complete before continuing on with more script. I played around with a 'for' command and kept incrementing the counter, but could never get it to churn long enough. Any other ideas
