    SN-006942 ***Alert Note***

    Value may not be stored with combo box using Dropdown List

    Product: SAS/AF
    Component: General AF applications
    Priority: ALERT

      Within the Form Viewer control (starting with Release 8.1) or Version 6
      Data Form object in a SAS/AF FRAME entry, the value typed may not be
      stored with the data if your column is linked to a Combo Box control
      that has comboBoxStyle set to Dropdown List.

      To replicate this problem, click within the text portion of the combo
      box and you'll see the list of values display. Type a value or the first
      letter of a value instead of selecting one. Tab or click on the next
      column instead of pressing enter.

      To circumvent the problem, change comboBoxStyle to Dropdown Combo.

      This problem can be replicated with a Combo Box Control outside of form
      viewer and data form, although it is most apparent within the two

      This is only a problem on PC platforms.

      We are investigating the possibility of a hot fix for this problem.
