Preserve user settings when compiling objects?

Can you preserve the user settings when compiling an object?

For example: the user has a list form and (s)he changes the column widths and the column order. After I compile the list form again all these settings are gone and the user has to rearrange the columns again to his/her likings.

Is there a way to save these settings?

    No, unfortunately not.
    The settings are stored in the zup-file which is being reset for the compiled/modified object.

    i just found a way to preserve the user settings.
    We use 2009 classic.

    -before importing or modifying the form. take a note of the time of the old object EX.: 14:08:40.017
    -import the form,
    -run it, the settings are gone,
    -change the the time with the saved time.
    -the settings are back and the users are happy.

    Compiling does not erase the settings it just looks for the time on the fin.zup.
    The date does not change anything.

    to test i modified an object at 09:10:00.203 and ran it with a setup.
    modified it at 10:22:59.157 and used another setup

    i just change the times to get the settings back.
    This will work if the fin.zup is not erased.

    by changing the times i can access my different setup.

    I hope this can be usefull.
