Trigger "Onopen" of document

Hi All,

This might be something very simple but I am stuck.

I have a trigger "OnOpen" of the document as below:

Action Type: Selection

Action: Select in field

Field Name: example

Search string: ='(test|not*|*--*)'

When I open the document, in the field example, 'test' and 'not test' are selected but '----' is not getting selected.

Anybody has any ideas on this? Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Thanks Alan. It worked for me also when I created a sample file.

Just one question, I will try to explain my scenario in brief :

In my actual file I have few other triggers "Onopen" of the document.

A field called Current Phase having values Ph 1, Ph 2, Ph3, Ph4, Ph5 and released.

Trigger is to select  Ph 2, Ph3, Ph4, Ph5.


Another field Phase review decision having values Pass, Not Ready, cancelled and --------

Trigger is to select Pass, Not Ready, -------


Since all the projects having decision as "---------" belong to Ph1 and the default selection for Current Phase do not include Ph1 , "--------" is not getting selected even after it is available in the trigger. Is this correct?
