Generators, First Row Display, Unable to see Columns from Page 1 erroneously fails to validate Pg 2


Article ID: 107907

When trying to edit/update field definitions on page 2 of the generator using 'First Row Display' the generator flags (incorrectly) ''Invalid Column Referenced" when the columns happen to be displaying on Page 1 of the 'First Row Display'.


- looks like a java-script or some sort of in-memory validation before starting the real validation against the contents of the formula/definition for the column on the generator.
