Datawindow bands problem

Question:
Occasionally I have found that after creating an executable, the bands in some of my datawindows have been repositioned to the top of that particular datawindow, causing a blank report. I checked the time stamp and found that that particular datawindow had not been modified since the creation of the last executable. What makes this happen?

Answer:
This is a known problem with 16-bit PowerBuilder. When resources are low and a datawindow is saved, all the bands collapse. This is especially noticeable when you have large and complex datawindow designs.

The only way to solve the problem is to reboot the PC and undo the collapsed bands. PB5 32-bit does not have this problem.
