onobjectvalidate (?) validating against parent fields
Consider the following:
I'm using a popup to select the template on the customer record.
I need to validate whether the validfrom>currentdate or validto<currentdate and display a message. The message is just a warning, so it can ultimately be.
My problem is that if I use the onobjectvalidate trigger the related record in the parent file (template) hasn't been retrieved yet, so I can't check the dates.
I know it's something simple, could someone please point me in the right direction of forcing the parent record to load?
Many thanks (again)
