Default value in enumeration

Hi. I’m trying to set the default value for my enumeration, but it’s not working. I thought this will solve the issue, but when I run my app, the default value is an empty row   What should I do?

Hi Ghada,

There are two ways to look at your issue;

  1. You would like data that already exists in the database to get the “new” default value. If this is the case, you need to write a conversion script, since existing data is unaffected by changing a default value on an enumeration.
  2. You have data that has the value set (check in the database viewer to make sure), but the caption is not showing in the client. If this is the case, check for the translation of the enumeration caption.


I hope this gives you some pointers in the right direction!


Kind regards, Bart
