I have just converted a large version 6 file to 10 and it is working well and hope to rewrite it in the near future. ( I am new to version 10) We went from 52 files down to 20 converted files and 4 new files(including using Seed Calendar.)

But in the mean time I am getting the occasional cannot modify and being used in a different window.

What should I be looking for to fix?

Congrats on your rewrite: that's a big job.

Make sure you include a commit record step in window A before opening a record or related record in window b. In portals this can sometimes require something like this:

Set Variable [$Row ; Get ( PortalRow )]
Commit Record
Go To Portal Row [$Row]
Go To Related Record, etc.

The variable thing is so the commit doesn't take your focus off the portal row you're editing.

Hope that helps.

Thanks .

So far it is only a partial rewrite of 16 years of work from version 2.1 through 6.

What about if the step to file B goes via a script ? Do I close the first window before opening the new window ?

In the past I simply ran an external script and did not worry about it at all, which was likely a bad technique.

Hi,

The record lock issue isn't so much about closing windows as about committing your changes in one window before working with the record in another.
