I received a condition today...Comp 5 and Comp 7 had the same photo...I figured I must have made a stupid error...my DH looks at my reports for such things and he didn't see it...

So I check the report..sure enough...same photos. SO I open it up and fix it..and somehow Comp 5 and Comp 7 are linked...you change one and it changes the other. I tried clearing it and saving them blank...clear one it clears the other. I rebooted..same deal. Each time I change Comp 5 it changes Comp 7...each time I change Comp 7 it changes Comp 5.

I've searched on the report for an option that may cause this and can't find anything.

Any ideas? I promised to send this back this evening...can't send it back
without being able to fix it.

I'd appreciate any help!!!! especially while I still have hair left.

Thanks!

I use WinTotal so this might not help, but try deleting the affected picture pages completely, re-add the picture pages, and then pop in the photos.

Lose comp 7. :shrug:

Or take the comps 7-9 photo page out and put comp 7 on an extra photo page. :flowers:

Just workaround ideas, never had that problem. Sounds like an ACI bug. I never had a problem with comps 1 to 6, and almost never go past 6 comps. No need.

I've seen that before. Quickest work around is to use the extra photo page for now...used to happen on some condo forms, and also I think on the gpar, though not at the same time.

Rufus, I tried that -- didn't help.

Lee, I think I will try what you suggested. I think it is an ACI bug and will call them tomorrow. This is the first time I've ever used a 7th comp and now I wish I hadn't.

thanks!

I used the ACI GPAR form today and noticed my Comp Picture page was messed up as well. I typed up the grid using 6 comps. Eliminated two comps, then rearranged their order - but the changes were not reflected in the Comp Photo page. Even the comps I eliminated still showed up in the photo pages. I had to go back and retype the correct info for the comp photo pages.

Judy, it's the strangest thing. I added a 1 photo page and put in the comp photo..then I removed the comp 7,8,9 page and to add to my frustration
the program deleted my comps photos 2 and 3 at the same time!!!

Go figure!

Hi - see my photo gremlins message. I think you need to be sure to delete the nutty pages and close the report. I would also close ACI and slap the side of the monitor for good measure. Then reopen ACI, reopen the report, add the new photo page, etc.
