Posted by Nico Wang on 11 February 2018 04:37 PM

The following critical issue is identified in the GA release of PowerBuilder 2017 R2 (Build 1756).

Known Issue with DataWindow Computed Columns 

If you make a change to the SQL of a DataWindow that contains computed columns (even if the change is only to add a few spaces), you will get these unexpected results: (1) The DB Name of the computed column will be changed to compute_####; (2) All the properties of the computed column (font, color, position, visibilities) will be reset.

The emergency patch is available in our Download portal along with the download link of PowerBuilder 2017 R2.

Sorry for any inconvenience this issue has caused you.
