    SN-009681 ***Alert Note***

    When data values wrap row of data may become corrupt after editing in

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

      If you are editing data in the VIEWTABLE window and values for at least
      one of the columns wraps across multiple lines, the row of data that you
      are editing may become corrupted as you scroll in the window and the
      total number of visible rows increases or decreases.

      To circumvent the problem, increase the width of the column(s) with
      wrapped data values so that the values no longer wrap across multiple
      lines. To increase the width of a displayed column, position your mouse
      cursor over the right-hand border of the column label cell and drag your
      mouse to the right.

      If increasing the width of a column is not possible, another
      circumvention is to switch to form view mode before editing your data.
