Thank you for the clarification. Gerald, my apology, Lotus Notes continues to show its "supremacy' as a valued email reader (not).
Check Ed's suggestions, though I have had a couple of files not update generated text even with full auto update on. Not often enough to generate (sic) a trouble ticket though and never to the point I could figure out why.
I use Outlook....anyway, the gentext is set to on. I noticed that when I make a change to the attribute in an element, the styler sheet does not reflect the change unless I do what I "described" or when I "Repeat Modify Attributes". We customize Epic with .NET. There is no Repeat (last action) in ACL or in the AOM, or atleast I haven't found any so, I did this: documentInterface.Undo documentInterface.Redo This works, but it seems a little hokey to me... thanks for your inputs. Aloha.
