Appraisal form - column appears 5 times in preview


I have a problem with the appraisal form (BSP Version without EHP 4.0). I created a form with multicolumn (Part Appraisal and Final Appraisal). If i start the preview I get the Part Appraisal column 5 times (in web and print preview).

Here is what I did, all standard, no new created Value Lists or enhancements or whatever involved:

I created a category with participants appraiser and part appraiser (no appraisee)

Columns: FAPP - Final Appraisal and PAPP - Part Appraisal

Roles: Manager and Subordiante

Value Lists: Empty - added none

Enhacements: Weblayout - Standard, Printlayout -Standard and Print Layout - with Smart Forms

Status Flow: In Process and Part Parraisal in Process

Next I created the Template:

Layout: no changes

Columns: Multi Columns - checked both Final and Part Appraisal - no values, just empty

Column Access: Standard settnigs - no changes

Roles: Manager and Subordinate (was default - no changes)

Processing: No changes

Status Flow: checked part appraisal in process and set status 4 in process (otherwise I got the error that the target status has to be set).

Then I just preview the form and - drumroll - I get the column Final Appraisal and 5 times Part Appraisal.

Does anybody has an Idea why?

Thanks in advanced.

Best regards,

    take into account that you will have a Part appraisal column for each Part appraiser you enter in the document. I guess you have set the maximum number of part appraisers to 5. This is why you are getting 5 part appraisal columns in the preview.

    Please consider this is just a preview. If you create a real document, you will just get as many part appraial columns as part appraisers you entered in the document.
