               If you have FileMaker Advanced, you can install a custom menu set that omits the duplicate record menu option.

               If you do not, you can use the OnCommitRecords trigger to perform your own script that checks for a duplicate and since its your script, you can revert the record the way you want to revert it and not present the user with a confusing validation error message.
