Error description

  • In DOORS 9.6 on data restored from an older version of DOORS
    when user switches from a view containing a layout DXL column,
    DOORS sends the message "The changes in the view were not saved"
    even if the view was not modified.
    
    APAR valid in both DOORS 9.6 32bit and 64bit
    
    To reproduce:
    1) create (in DOORS older version of DOORS (8.3, 9.3, and
    9.5.2.1, have all been tested) a module with a view containing a
    layout DXL
    2) archive this module and restore it in DOORS 9.6 32 or 64
    bits.
    3) go from standard view to the view with the layout DXL. Do not
    make any changes to view.
    4) go back to standard view (or any view without layout), the
    "Changes made to view X will be lost if you continue" message
    comes up.
    
    If data was created in DOORS 9.6 the issue does not occur.
