If that ${form_field.Farea} is appearing in the final generated code then it shouldn't.
Something went wrong on the generation, and it's not recognizing the field as a list (from other table) correctly.
That should be automatically replaced by the name area of the field that represents the list in that form.



In this case "SOMELIST" should be a field from another (related) table, so it becomes a list on your form.

Please check if the field that is representing the list is listed in your form as DB or DL (DB-List or Limited DB) and related to a table that your form's area is also related.

Hope it helps.

The form has a "List button" that is used to list records from a table that is not related with the table of the form. I also tried to use this button to list tables that are related with the table of the form and the problem remained, the ${form_field.Farea} keeps appearing on the generated code. Could this be a problem with the button itself? Is there another way to create a button that lists another table (non related with the form table), manipulating the results of that same list?

I think that your relational model might not be accurate: If it's not related, why do you want to select one record from that other table in this form? In order to do this, you have to place one field in the table that will keep that selection (and relation). Otherwise, how would the system know which one was selected when you entered a saved record of this form?
