Other Info Box missing Reference

Recommended Posts

In my main database the Reference Field does not appear in Other Info Box. The only fields that show to be enabled are Children, Tag Count, Age, Last edited, Selecte, and  Soundex (All my other databases have: Children, Tag Count, Age, Last edited, Reference, and  Soundex). Selecte when enabled shows no data. The picklist does show the reference field, but it is not available to edit

Sometimes, the .PJC file becomes corrupted and mucks up the Other Info display.

Check the .project's PJC file in your project folder with a text editor.  It should have a section like this...

[Otherinfobox]
Selected1=Age/Y
Selected2=Children/Y
Selected3=Soundex/Y
Selected4=Last edited/Y
Selected5=Tag count/Y
Selected6=Reference/Y

The /Y means that the field is enabled. /N if the field is disabled. The order is the order of the items in the Other Info box.

If the PJC file is corrupted, I can rebuild it for you.

Jim,

   Mine reads:

[Otherinfobox]
Selected1=Children/N
Selected2=Tag count/N
Selected3=Age/Y
Selected4=Last edited/Y
Selected5=Selecte/N
Selected6=Soundex/N

   I've attached the file. I'd appreciate it if you if you would please repair it.

Thank you,

Why are you clicking on the repaired PJC file that I posted for you? You can drag the file from the post to your desktop.

You copy the file into your project folder overwriting the existing damaged PJC file.

Then you run TMG and check out the Other Info box.

Jim,

When I tried copying it I got "attachment.php" which is attached - not usable

When I dragged it to my directory I got this "Maybee Society__.PJC" also not usable, but it did overwrite my old one so TMG won't open.

John

 

attachment.php

Maybee Society__.PJC.URL

OK. When I drag and drop to the desktop, what I get is a shortcut.

Clicking on the shortcut gets the .PJC file downloaded to my downloads folder. I dragged the downloaded .PJC file to my desktop.

Assuming that you follow those steps, from that point, you could drag the .PJC file from your desktop to your projects folder and overwrite the existing file.

I compared your fixed .PJC file to one of my .PJC files. Your fixed .PJC file is complete and undamaged.

btw... I gave you the information in my first post that provides what you need to know to repair your own .PJC file.

Jim,

    When I dragged it to my desktop I did get a shortcut to http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=3504

    When it click ot it, it goes to that address which gives me the message:

"Sorry, there is a problem

The page you are trying to access is not available for your account.

Error code: 2C171/1"

even though I am signed in as John MayBee

    I will try editing my .plc file and see if I can just edit it mas you suggest.

Thanks for your help

Jim.

    I was able to edit my pjc file and it worked!  I had no idea that it could be edited in WordPad.

Thanks,, John

WordPad is fine to edit a text file as long as it's saved as a text file. Using Notepad would be better since you can't save the file as anything other than a text file.

Glad that you got things fixed.
