Data being updated does not exist. (18,4)
When trying to save your changes, the system could not find the existing data in the database.
This problem can happen if another user deleted the information while you were making changes. Make a note of what you were doing, then cancel the page and retry.
If the problem persists this may be the result of an application programming error and should be reported to technical support staff.
Possible application errors that could cause this including deleting the data with SqlExec while the record is in the component buffers.
