Hi,

There is a requirement to display some text (say "Please update before exit") instead of the default warning message "Data has been changed but not updated. Repeat the action if this is ok." in Quick screen. This default warning message will be displayed, when the user forgets to update the changes done, while exiting the screen.

Can anyone please advise how to change the default warning message? Is there any possibility for that?

Thanks in advance!!

Hi,

It's been a long (long long) time since I touched PowerHouse, but I seem to remember there are message files for the error messages, and it's possible to customise them. I can't remember where or how though, sorry.

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!

Thanks,
