Activate Object Trigger (text Box)

It seems like this should be simple but not working...

I added a trigger when activating a sheet to activate an object (a text box) but nothing happens when I go to that sheet. It just sits on the last selected text box. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance...

Looks like the text objects that you are referencing also have actions associated to them.  If that is the case you'll want to duplicate those actions with the Activate Sheet action.

Good luck

Steve,

Your going to need to be a bit more descriptive or attach an example QVW.  What are you expecting to happen when the action is triggered?

like Oscar said, a sample qvw will help instead of listing out the number of things that may be in play here...but a quick one  assuming that the trigger is set up right, if the text object is supposed to activate over another existing text box/object...take a look at the layers....may be it is activated but still behind the existing object.

So all I really want to do is have the "Revenue" text box selected/activated when going to the "Revenue & Premium" tab. Right now you can see that when I went to this tab it stayed on the "Carrier Premium" textbox.

Thanks - I recreated all triggers from the object in the on activate sheet and is working well. Thanks!
