Okay, what is different.  As far as I have been able to tell,
absolutely nothing.  That is the mystery.  Obviously something
is different, I just can't find out what it is.

Both users have same security.  In fact, user TEST was created just
for this by copying my user profile.

Both users sign on the exact same system, in the exact same way.  I
have a dumb tube with 2 sessions.  It doesn't matter which session
I log in as me (Jim) or which I log in as Test.  Jim can do an upddta
on the file, and test cannot.  Whenever Test tries to call up data on
the screen, by scrolling (roll up or roll down) or entering a key field
an error is returned that the record retrieved contains invalid data.

Jim, on the other hand, can browse the data fine, without any difficulty.

I have duplicated the environment the best I can, but there is obviously
something different.  I just don't' know what nor can I find it.

What really concerns me is that I will create DDS for existing files, and
I will generally check that the DDS is correct by browsing through the
data using UPDDTA.  Now it appears this is not foolproof.  Or just that
they did make it foolproof and I proved to be the better fool <g>

Jim Langston
