There are times while using 4D plug-ins, such as 4D Chart or 4D Write, that will result in a message similar to the following:

4D Chart can save the document automatically in the picture field "[table_name]variable_name_ " if it existed.

Notice that the message is red. 4D displays the message in red because either the field name or variable is incorrect. If your variable and field name are labeled correctly, the message will be black.

Steps needed to solve this problem are:


  1. Make sure the field name is immediately followed by an underscore.
    Ex. if your field name is 'chart' change it to 'chart_'.
  2. Make sure your variable name in the Object Properties box is the same as the field name without the underscore.
    Ex. variable name should be 'chart' to correspond to the field name.


Note: The field name contains an underscore and the variable name does not. Once the changes have been made, the message will look like this:

4D Chart can save the document automatically in the picture field "[table_name]variable_name_ "
