I encountered a problem extracting data from a constructed type, 
using TableMaker in Webace 2.  I'll illustrate the problem with
the SolGenes database at http://synteny.nott.ac.uk or 
http://geneous.cit.cornell.edu.  The model for ?Locus contains
the "Location Map ?Map #map_location".  The model for ?map_location
contains "Position Float".  The desire was to create a table of Locus 
objects on the map, "Potato-4" and their position values.  The 
following model can be used in Webace on http://probe.nalusda.gov:

Sortcolumn 3

Colonne 1
Width 12
Mandatory
Visible
Class
Class Locus
>From 0

Colonne 2
Width 12
Mandatory
Hidden
Class
Class Map
>From 1
Tag Map
Condition Potato-4

Colonne 3
Width 12
Mandatory
Visible
Float
Right_of 2
Tag HERE # Position

However, the Tag Chooser in Webace2 does not permit one to select
Float in Column 3.  One could only select map_location in Column 3,
and then try to move to the right and select the Float in a succeeding 
column:

Colonne 3
Width 12
Optional
Hidden
Class
Class map_location
Right_of 2
Tag HERE 

Colonne 4
Width 12
Optional
Visible
Float
Right_of 3
Tag HERE # Position
  
However, there were no position values in the  resulting table.  Does 
anybody have a fix for this problem?

Thanks,
Sam Beer
