Setting a variable from a value list
I have a need to set a variable based on a value list.
You'll probably jump in and suggest to use a global field to capture the input from the layout, which works fine, until there are no visible records.
In the scenario I have, I'm using the user input from the value list to extend the found records STARTING FROM 0 RECORDS, and I can't set the field to a non-existent record.
I'd like to go straight from a value list to a variable.
Can this be done ?
I'm thinking I'll have to make the input a button that opens a new window with a stripped down layout displaying a record's value listed field. I'd then set a global variable from the selected field's input. Any simpler solutions ?
