related records - seeing all relationships

OK I might be going around the twist.....but I thought that the view pane field of Related Records used to also show any records that have the relationship of Alternatively Within (as it is a relationship).  But alas in 6.2.5 #1322 it doesnt.  

 

Does anyone know 1.  if  i am going around the twist or 2.  why the functionality no longer exists.

 

Cheers

Mel

You can customise the View Pane to add Alternative Container to view that type of relationships

Re: related records - seeing all relationships

Thanks Tones.  I was hoping to avoid adding another field down there.  Plus, it is a relationship, you do it in the same place that you do all the other types of relationships......so why I cant I have it under Related Records :smileysad: 

 

Rant over now

Melly, I feel your pain but I assume it is to allow users to see Containers and Alternative Containers in a single place.

Don't think it did show in the related records field previously. Certainly didn't in earlier 6.2 versions.

Re: related records - seeing all relationships

Neil, I'm talking about waaaaay back further than 6.2.  Perhaps v6

Re: related records - seeing all relationships

Just tested in 6.1.3 and 5.2.5. Related records field in the view pane didn't include "Alternatively Within" relationships. Shall I try Captura, or are you convinced now?

Re: related records - seeing all relationships

I think Neil should also setup and test TRIM Classic or TRIM for windows...

Thanks for the insult guys.  I'll refrain from posting here again. 

 

PS - Actually it was 5.2.1.

Re: related records - seeing all relationships

Yep, 5.2.1 is going back a very long way.

While TRIM was still under TOWER, the oldest supported version was 5.2.2.

 

I think you'll benefit greatly by upgrading to a newer version.

Re: related records - seeing all relationships

Yep, remember there are a lot of us that have been implementing TRIM for a long time.

 

Don't worry, my client is not on 5.2.1.

No insult intended Melly I'm sure. If it'll help put your mind at ease that you're not "going around the twist" I'll happily test it on 5.2.1 for you.

Re: related records - seeing all relationships

What the heck...

 

I didn't have a copy of 5.2.1 handy, so I checked in 5.2.0. No luck. No alternative containers in the related records field. It must have only been in 5.2.1 that it behaved as you remember it! :smileywink:

 

(P.S. For those who can't remember how ugly 5.2 was, I've attached a screen shot).
