Default Repeat region, I cannot change the 'show records'

I have created a master-detail page set in Dreamweaver.
This application object created a server behavior named 'repeat region' that displays 18 records in master page.

Now I decided to change this to display 22 records.
Unforunately it don't let me do it.
I select the repeat region server behavior. I go to the properties panel and I change in the 'Show: 18 records' to the number 22.
Then Dreamweaver displays a window popup message thas says: "The recordset was only partialy deleted. To delete it entirely, undo your edit and click the minus(-) button in the Server Behavior Inspector'.

But, I did not wanted to delete it. Why Dreamweaver supposes such a thing? All I need is just a change in the number!

I also looked at the appropriate code but I could not find the number 18. So, something happen here and I cannot make my simple task.

Please help me to overcome my strange problem.

I have bumped into this myself and it is caused by the recordset getting corrupted somehow. Perhaps there were other things going on that caused its corruption.

Here is what I do:

As strange as this sounds, I close DW out completely and reopen the website. Occasionally things get caught up in memory and this sometimes help.

If that does not work, try to delete the recordset and rebuild it. It only takes a couple of minutes to rebuild usually. If you do that, makes sure any reference to it is wiped out in the Header of the HTML code.

Let me know if it works,

Thanks for your response.

I was not lucky enough to exit from Dreamweaver and solve my problem. I even restart the pc. Nothing changed at all.

Unfortunatelly, the deleting is not a solution for me.
- I am not a programmer, I use Dreamweaver's internal (excellent) application objects.
- When I delete the repeat region, Dreamweaver deletes from server behaviors all recordsets! So I should create them all from scratch.
- At last, I have spent many time in configuring these recordsets and master-detail page set. I have not the time to create them again.
- It is possible to want to make a change again, after a few weeks. What I 'll do then?

I think the repeat region should store somewhere the value (number of records) the user gives. Where is it?
What else can I do?
I would appreciate if you could suggest me a way to solve my problem, other from deleting.

Thanks in advance

Finally I found were in the asp code was stored the value of the number of records to be shown, so I changed it manually.

Now everything is ok.

Thanks for your support
