Floating field in table will not flow to the next page - still not working

Avatar

Level 5

Hi, I have replied to my previous question and have not received an answer so I'm reposting my issue here because I'm not sure if my replies are being seen by anyone. My issue has not been rectified so please let me be more specific about my issue.  On my form, I have a drop down box listing choices.  The item chosen from the drop down list is populated into a floating field which is in the header of a table.  When the table flows to the next page, the headers of the table flows to the next page as well.  My problem is that the information that is in the floating field of the header on the first page does not move to the next page.  The header box on the next page is empty.  The answer I received is still not working and I have additional questions.  Maybe this explanation is better and will result in a fix.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @islandgirl23 

the floating fields do not persist their values between header instances. You have 2 kinds which need different approaches

1) ssf - make it global data and it will show on all pages:

2) moneyo is different. First problem is that you overwrite it every time with a script. It seems to be part of the data set. Instead of the script use the data binding.

I see from the previous thread that you're using Livecycle Designer (EOL version) to develop the form, just wondering that could be the reason you're not able to implement the suggestions. 

Please share a sample form with us for a better understanding of the issue.
