Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to the "ABC" work center.
2. Select the "YYZ" view.
3. Search for Document "ABC".
4. Click Preview.
5. Click on the Document.

 You will see that data under new column created is not appearing.


Easy Form only supports absolute binding to the field in form template, so as this is relative binding the Easy Form will not trigger this binding and hence the data is not shown.


You can either remove the relative binding at table "rowMain" that will automatically set absolute paths for all the underlying fields, or mantain the binding using Adobe LiveCycle Designer (ALD) for the affected field to set the relative path.

You can open the form template in ALD and check how the absolute biding looks like from Easy Form.

Example: $.FinancialTransactions.ManagementFees[*].WeightedManagementFeesForm

This is how relative binding looks like:

Example: $.WeightedManagementFeesForm

If you set the relative binding in ALD manually, the data should appear in template just fine.
