We have several fields in different entities which logically need to share a valrep. (Values provided by customs and excise, needs to be stored at supplier, order and receipt level.) Customs recently changed the list, and one of our devlopers was cought out, when they changed two of the three fields to have a new valrep, data defaulted from one field to another could no longer be updated into the database. The UI did not have the field painted, so the user was stuck and couldn't update the data. Is there a way of setting up a valrep IN THE MODEL, which is 'shared' in some way between these three fields? i.e. a central copy is updated and they are all refreshed? I am aware we could remove the valrep for the drop down list, and implement it in the UI from (for example) a global constant, but I'd prefer if the inclusion of the field from the model did all the work for us.
