Hello, I tried to use the so-called user defined field in OpenDocMan. I think it's great thing to add own indication to documents. But it did not work.

I could create one single UDF - but I was not able to add any values that one could chose from for this field.

As well, trying to add a second UDF, I got the system message that it was added successfully, but I never saw it appearing anywhere.

So: How can I add values to the drop-down field to chose from?
And: How can I create more than one User Defined Fields?

Thanks for help!

Ok there, it's me:

For one of the to issues I just discovered my mistake: I used "C.NE" as the Name of the User Defined Field. I think it cannot manage dots or so. When I name it "CNE" I can add values and it works well. (Even if it will not let you chose a blank entry when adding a file.)

But the problem that I can only create one single UDF remains.

Have you applied all the applicable UDF patches?

The "Display Name" can contain periods... using "C.NE" should not have caused an error.

The "Table Name" must be a valid database table name. The use of invalid characters should have triggered an error. Please submit this using the bug tracker.

Thanks for the reply,

I don't know what patches have been installed, I did not do the installation. I just tested it and wanted to know if this was a known issue or if it should actually work.

So you say one should actually be able to add more than one UDF?

Thank you

Yes, you can definitely add more than one UDF once all the UDF related patches are installed.
