Error description

  • While modifying a existing record by double clicking on a drop
    down combo box that contains a list of users (approx 8000) and
    type in the user name.  Then click on the arrow on the drop list

    When done very quickly the drop down list changes to null and is
    saved that way which is a invalid value.
