have the same problem some times, seems there is a problem with naming
the chain,
if the field named with #form123.#page124.#table234.#rec45.ApptNote all
is good, if #page124 is named Seite1 (in my program) then this error
sometimes occur.
the problem came in the past for forms from P7 upgraded to P9.
if I redesign the forms completly, with some copy and paste, the error
is away.
