I've successfully WebFaced a very small project. Now its onto the meat and potatoes. We have a fairly large sized application that we want to WebFace, and approximately 99% of all the display files use the REF and REFFLD keywords in the DDS. When we run the DDS through the tool it cannot determine the attributes of the fields. Hence, a big boom when we convert. How can I get around this?
The current version of WebFacing does correctly support REF, REFFLD keywords. Check the library list for your WebFacing project to see if the files are in the library list during conversion.
