Why are my records not displaying in the Switchboard

28 New Member
I've got some Forms and Filters that are opened via a Switchboard when selected. They all work just fine when I open them individually (outside of the Switchboard). The Forms which only have links to reports, open their respective Reports and display the data without issue.

BUT the Forms and Filters which display live data (and allow for the adding/deleting of records) from the Queries show NO data at all WHEN BEING OPENED FROM INSIDE THE SWITCHBOARD. Is there a setting I am forgetting to turn on or alter?

There are multiple ways you can open a form. As read only, add new data only, etc. When you set up the switch board, there was an option on how it opens up the form.

I understand that. And as stated, the forms all open just fine. However, the forms which need to show live data (not just a printed report so-to-speak) do not show anything at all when loaded FROM the switchboard. Outside the switchboard, everything works wonderfully.

I know. And in the switchboard, it is likely using a different open state. When you open a form manually, it opens in full edit by default. In a switchboard, that state is not always the default. You need to change the open state in the switchboard item for that form.

I'm not sure how to change that... All the forms open in Form View.

Shall I post the code for the button clicks?

There are different states for form views. In the switchboard manager, you can select what state to open the form view in. If you are not using the switchboard manager, then you need to post your code.
