If VaL really is unable to edit field data, then:
1.) what is the purpose of adding a new (ie., blank) record, whose displays of data cannot be edited?
2.) why is it not classified as a report instead of a form?
Don’t mind my fond reminscances of v6 VaLs. while I gently nudge my way over to the Matrix Object, which is probably what I need: a scrolling list of editable records.
