Recordset Variables gone on install of DA

Thanks for the quick reply. I've included 4 images that should give you an idea of what I'm talking about. As far as the versions, I really am not sure how to tell other than they are likely the very latest ones unless a change has been made in the past 24 hours. The reason I'm saying that is because I only purchased the annual subscription yesterday morning and downloaded the versions roughtly this time (5PM CDT Octover 14, 2009) yesterday.

I am a little less "freaked out" as I now know that this is an annoyance rather than something that truly screwed up my files. In other words, the problem is local to the Dreamweaver installation as can be seen in the images. Uploading files to a web server works normally as the recordset variables are still there. They just cannot be seen by the Dreamweaver installation that had the WA products installed on it. If you open the files in Dreamweaver on another machine they appear normal (ie they lack the ! next to the recordset).

As mentioned before, this leads me to think that whatever file(s) or settings were changed or overwritten during the install of the WA program(s) has somehow disabled Dreamweaver from seeing recordset variables that are actually there.

I should also point out that seems entirely limited to the variables used to narrow queries in the WHERE clause of the recordset and does not discriminate based on $_SESSION, $_GET, $_POST, etc. Any variables that I have hand-coded in the PHP and / or not in recordsets show up fine in the Dreamweaver code view. Strange.

Anyhow, hopefully that gives you a better understanding of what is happening, please feel free to ask for more information,
