    Re: Unique fields


      Unfortunately this no way to make the field unique.

      Its a workaround which only will work with the template it ist built in.

    Unique fields


      How can I make a field unique?
      I want a user to enter a unique serial number. If a record already exists for that number, I don't want a new record created.
      Another approach, can I change the ID field number to be a unique number of my choosing instead of a sequentially assigned number?
      Thanks!

      <perl>
      if ($cmd eq "add")
      {
      get "fieldname==$_put{fieldname}, "yourdatabase";
      if ($_amount_query > 0)
      {
      $cmd="";
      out "yor message (entry existing or what ever you want)!";
      }
      }
      </perl>

    Re: Unique fields


      Can't see any sparrow. If you need a safe unique reference your approach is incomplete.

      In addition their is no solution in your posting to secure the unique reference in case of editing a record. The questioner should know this.

    Re: Unique fields


      I'm not very familiar with Perl or variables...
      How am I supposed to use the code you suggested?
      This is what I have:
      Thanks!
      Lucas



      <do action=input>

      <do action=list listtype=add spacing=0
      listfields=Serial,Model>

      <!-- verify serial is unique -->
      <perl>
      if ($cmd eq "add")
      {
      get "Serial==$_put{Serial}", "Inspection";
      if ($_amount_query > 0)
      {
      $cmd="";
      out "Serial Number Already Exists";
      }
      }
      </perl>

    Re: Unique fields


      Thanks. That displays the message correctly, but still adds the duplicate record to the database.
