    SN-009781 ***Alert Note***

    Update may be lost if modify input field and then scroll with PageDown
    or PageUp

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

      Within a SAS/AF FRAME entry, if you modify a column that is linked to a
      Version 6 legacy input field widget in either a Version 6 Data Form
      object or a Form Viewer control and then immediately press either
      PageDown or PageUp, the last update may not be saved. However, if you
      press ENTER or click anywhere within the frame before pressing PageDown
      or PageUp, the last update is saved.

      To circumvent the problem, you can assign the FORWARD and BACKWARD
      commands to function keys and scroll using those keys instead of using
      PageDown and PageUp. Another circumvention is to replace the input
      fields with text entry controls.

      This problem should only occur on PC platforms. Development is
      investigating the possibility of a hot fix.
