Title

More Than 1 User Function

Post

Hi there. This is probably within the forum, but i couldn't find it in a search. Maybe it's my wording.

Anyways, i was wondering if there was a function (like a get-function) that checks to see if the record is currently being modified by a user.

My issue is that i have a script that creates a record on a related table even if the record is currently being used by another user. This throws out the "User is modifying record" error, but still gives me a blank record in my other table. My users then don't wait for the other person to be done, come back later and throw in a new record, which leaves me with loads of incomplete records.

I was wondering if i could validate it with an if script step first and avoiding all of this. I checked the filemaker function reference, but didn't find what i was looking for.

This is probably a quick solve, so thanks for your help in advance.
