    Posted: 13 Dec 2016 at 6:58pm

I have this Code in a document level script. The problem I am encountering is that this question box shows up before the actual form loads. I need to ensure that the form is blank before this pops up and before any other script is run. I cant fiqure this out and can use some help. I have tried the app.setTimeOut function (see second line from the bottom of the code). But no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated!! I am goin crazy trying to figure this out and I am sure there is a simple answer. 

Document Level Code

function IncreaseReportNumber()
var vButton = app.alert({
cMsg: "Do you want to advance the report number?",
cTitle: "A message from Dan Sajdak",   nIcon: 2, nType: 3  });

if ( vButton == 4  )
//Increase Report Number
var oField = this.getField("REPORT NUMBER");

if(oField == null) app.alert("Error in field name: REPORT NUMBER\Check spelling and capitalizaton.", 1, 0);
oField.value ++ ;
oField.defaultValue = oField.value ;


// more debugging code;
app.alert("number not updated", 3, 0);

} // end response 4;
} // end IncreaseReportNumber function;
