Confused about editing Classes in ED via "Retrieve Data"

Post by EdB » Wed 24 Apr 2013 02:38

Hi,

May be a stupid question, but how can I add data to an entity in ED? It seems that one can "Append" a record and "End Edit", but it does nothing for me. When I re-execute I get the old records back. I am using V5.5 ED

Thanks,

Please add record(s) in the grid and press the Save button on the Toolbar.

This is sort now. I am using CTRL-S.

However I did find an issue with using string default values. It turns out that you need to specify them as 'test' not "test" or Test. Not sure where this is documented?

thanks.

We have added additional Save and Refresh buttons to the grid. This functionality is available in the current (5.5.115) build of Entity Developer.
