How do you manage the change over to the next letter of your docket_series.
If we can figure out a simple way to determine the current docket series, we can set up a scripted find where the user specifies the series while in browse mode. The find script would then check for a letter as the last character and supply the most recent docket_series value if one was not entered by the user when setting up the needed find requests.
For an advance peak at the type of script that I have in mind, see: Scripted Find Examples
Thanks for the response. I did look at the script in the posting you referred to, and I can see the logic there…I need to declare the current docket series in a global field. Right now it’s just auto-entering using the field’s “Auto-enter - Data” in the field definition. This won’t work…I need to build it into a ghloa The script will go and fetch that and insert it during the find script. I’ll play with this.
As long as your script can determine what value is the current docket series letter, it does not necessarily need to put in in a global field. Global fields are used in the example scripts as a way to collect user input which is then still accessible to the script when it switches to find mode. It can find the value and put it in a variable when the value is not something manually specified by the user.
