Hello all,

I just upgraded from 3.11something to 3.12.232.  The select_one question whose choices have County name for the label and the 3 digit fips for the name (ex. 001).  It worked fine previously by storing the '001' value.  After the update, the question now seems to view the text value as a number.  I concatenate with state fips in a hidden field.  I changed the hidden to note and see it happening in the form UI upon selection of the County.  And yes, I cast the values as string in the calculation.  🙂  Anyone else seeing this issue and or have a suggested work around?  

 

Select one - County name with 3 digit FIPS:  

County001Adams
County003Allegheny
County005Armstrong

 

Selected value save "1" instead of "001".  Select one field type is esriFieldTypeString.

Example attached.

Thanks,

Jim

 

*****UPDATE*****

I engaged tech support.  This is a recent bug #BUG-000138199.

Suggestions for workarounds short of post-submission scripting would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi Phil, Thanks for responding.  For clarity, has it been slated for the next release or potentially a hot-fix type release or just a release yet to be determined.  Thanks, Jim

Hi @JimFrank4,

At this stage we are aiming for the next release, not a hotfix to 3.12, due to timing and other limiting factors. However until the issue is resolved and tested we can't confirm exactly when it will be ready, however as soon as it is it will be made available to the Early Adopter Community for testing and feedback.

Regards,

Phil.
