We are facing a typical problem regarding use of powerbuilder to develop
COM/MTS Objects.
The thing is that we have made few GLOBAL FUNCTIONS which return some formats
and we use these global functions in the format expression of some fields in
datawindow.
Eventually these thing doesn't work ( I mean format on fields are not applied )
, when running this com object on MTS . The same thing works fine with our
another application which is an ordinary powerbuilder client server exe( Not
COM MTS)

It seems that Use of GLOBAL FUNCTIONS is prohibited( not sure) in case of
COM/MTS development

Will Highly appreciate if you can help or give some link of somebody who can
help.
Thanks in advance
