How can I program a Value into a SalesLogix picklist field without the value being Null when choosing "None"?


 We have a pick list whose attributes are the following:

1. Text must match a list item

2. Users cannot edit items

The other attributes are blank.

The problem we are having is that the first value in the picklist is <None> and some users are selecting that, and that is entering <NULL> in the table. We do not want to check the “Required Entry” checkbox because that forces the end user to select something, but there may be times when they accidentally enter the picklist. How can we avoid entering <NULL> without requiring entry?

A simple piece of code on the popupreturn event will do the job.

Otherwide you will have to use the required entry approach.
