Hi Jim,

there is a template bug (at least in the ABC templates, not sure about
legacy) that will cause the swapping of child records that you
describe. You need to have your files set to "Open in current thread"
in order for this error to show up.
To replicate, do the following with any template generated browse/form:

1. Open the browse procedure
2. Open an update form that has a a browse with child records in it (A)
3. Open the same browse pocedure as in step 1 again in a second thread
4. Open an update form with another record as in step 2 that also has
child records in it (B)
5. close form (B) and the browse
6. close form (A)
7. open form (B) again: the child records of form (A) will now show up
in form (B)!

Workaround: add logic to your program so that all browses can only be opened


with best regards,
