setting field default values in V6.2

At the risk of sing like a complete dunce, I can't remember how to change the default value in data field. Ive done it in the past, but HOW I did it escapes me...

 

I'm still in SLX  Version 6.2. I am using fields User 1 and User2 at the Contact level. They are renamed in the database. They appear on the Cont input screen. They work fine.

 

Where do I go to change the default values for the fields?

 

Thanks to anyone who can help me!

Hi Ted

 

There's no default to speak of - they are normally set via code. Unless you mean picklist items ?

 

Regards
Mike

Thanks Mike,

 

Yes, they are PickList fields. They are User1, User2 and User3. User fields don't seem to appear in the picklist manager.

Largely, I think, depending on the form, that the defaults for picklists stopped working sometime back, On the OnChange of the form simply set the value you want as the default by hand.

We have seen picklist defaults "fail" on 7.5.4.xxx systems as well.
