thanks Jason,
Unlike Helen, you've confirmed my observations exactly.
As I said, this is part of the implementation and goes back as far as Delphi
My comments which prompted this sample was an attempt to assist someone who
MAY have left a key persistent field out and still required it for detail
parameter sourcing.
As you have confirmed, this won't work.
You either need to have no fields at all OR you need to ensure that if you
add any fields manually, then you need the specific datasourced field to
avoid a dead detail dataset.
