Autofill & One Item Reports


If you set up a "one item" report to fill in values automatically, it will give an error message when you first open the report.

Not a real big deal, but it could be annoying or confusing if you have set the report options incorrectly.

  2. Use the popup menus at upper left to locate the report.
  3. Choose Report Display from the Options menu.
  4. If One-Record Display is turned on, turn off the checkbox for Update on Opening Window.
