Yesterday we found another bug which means that for a relational data system you can only enter one record in EntryClient at the "derived/sub dataform" level.

The bug has been fixed and an updated EntryClient will appear on the website after we have had time to test it for other aspects. Most likely the update will appear tomorrow. The list will be informed. The bug does NOT affect function for projects with only one dataform.
