You certainly have to hit return in the field for the condition to
register. I remember problems with this, but I have used the field in
xace. Normally I use prestored tables. What if you save a table and
reload it back into xace?
Jean has added significantly to Table_maker for the next version of
ACEDB. First it now handles correctly items that are not immediately
adjacent to a tag, so you can make a table of all pairs. Second, you
can now set a condition on a column involving other columns as
parameters in the query. This in effect allows relational join-type
operations. Unfortunately there is a fatal bug we must find before it
