Adjusts differences between the QuickView and InfoSet.

If you create QuickViews based on InfoSets, differences in individual field definitions may occur between a QuickView and its associated InfoSet.


Suppose you have created a QuickView using an InfoSet and have already executed it a number of times. Your system administrator then modifies an InfoSet field by changing the type of field you use in the QuickView. The next time you want to work with the QuickView, you get a message informing you that differences exist between the QuickView and the InfoSet.

If differences occur between QuickViews and InfoSets, you should terminate processing and carry out a comparison between the QuickView and the InfoSet.

When you carry out an adjustment you see a list of all the fields that are defined differently, together with information about how the field definition has changed and where the field is used in the QuickView. The system gives you an automatic adjustment option for individual fields. At the end of the list, there are some notes telling you what to look out for with automatic adjustment and what you must do, if you want to carry out the adjustment yourself.
