We all have had a table of fields involving hide/when and a request to enlarge it or change a condition. This usually results in the frustrating method of clicking the "Field" properties box and updating the field names from _1, _2, which Notes appended on the name when it was copied from the table section. Next, perform this with the hide/when tab, Input translation function and the Input validation function.
Note: Use the @This function. If you're just emerging from a version of Lotus Notes Domino before R6 or haven't read R6 documentation, @This is for you. It can be helpful if you don't like updating hide/when fields, translation formulas and validation formulas.
