Global variables on list page for data entry

editSubscribe (1) ShareShare
Posted on by 7


I am trying to add a global variable to list page for a user to enter data into.

When the list page is filtered the last value entered in the global variable is being displayed against all records on the page.

Are global variables values on a list page not stored against the induvial record?

    If you are declaring any value on any variable and then running the page, you can see the values only when its updating one time, but not after then, because variable you can use only to display the values like on OnAfterGetRecord or any other trigger.

    Hi, As far as I know, global variables are not stored in records. It will reset when you close the page and open it again.
    If you need to store records, it is recommended to add new fields to the table.

    Hope this helps.
