We have been running a Cardbox database for some years and a problem has recently cropped up. When adding keywords to certain fields in new records they are not automatically indexed for searching (they should turn red). They can be indexed manually (right click, index) and turn red as they should - but when the change is saved, the indexing is not saved (the word turns black again).
Further, if an older record, with correctly indexed keywords in the field, is edited, the whole field turns black.
As these non-indexed keywords do not appear in an F4 search, this is obviously quite inconvenient, and any help you could offer to sort this out would be much appreciated.
Thanks for replying so quickly. Disabling validation worked, and on investigating it seems that the keyword.txt file which the validation was comparing against somehow got moved to a different place (no idea how, I've just started here...)
