This week I received a question about a particular Infor CRM (Saleslogix) picklist. One of the picklist items, when chosen, would not show up in the field. If another item was chosen with it, the other item would show up, but if you went back into the picklist, the first was not checked. It was doing strange things and would not stick in the field.
I went into the picklist setup and compared this picklist item with the other items in the picklist. One difference that I found was that this item contained a comma. I removed the comma and replaced it with a slash. Saved the picklist and cleared the cache in my browser.
The picklist item now works just fine. Make sure that you are using all valid characters in you picklist items.
