Title

unique field not recognized?

Post

I have a field in my data base that requires the user to enter a unique value, but it sees "GATCGGATCCGCCGCCACCATGgcccccccgaccgatgtcagcct"  and
"GATCGGATCCGCCGCCACCATGgagttccgcgatgccctggaggatcgc" as the same.  Is this a bug or is there anything I can do about it?  Is there a way to increase the stringency of "unique"? This is a database of dna sequences used in academic/ non-commercial research and I as using filemaker pro 6.0 v4 on a Mac.

Thanks
