      Clearing recrods from List view

      Post


           When navigating to list view and creating a new record via a script, what is the command to OMIT from the list view all other pre-existing records so that the only record you see is the one you just created

               Records  are limited by your found set.  If you create a new record with a primary key field, then perform a find on the new primary key.

                 Thanks, makes sense. But when i went to Perform Find or Enter Find Mode, I was expecting to be able to do a find for last record but could not find an operator for that. Instead I selected Creation Date and had it find today's date which gave me what I wanted for the first record of the day but is not perfect for later on the same day because I will be printing checks from this layout and would like to have only the ones not yet printed visible even for the same day

                 Thanks

                   Have the script that creates the new record capture the value of a serial number field in a variable and then perform a find for it.

                   New Record/Request
                   Set Variable [$ID ; value: YourTable::IDField ]
                   Enter Find Mode [] --> clear the pause check box
                   Set Field [YourTable::IDField ; $ID]
                   Perform FInd[]

                   In a database that is not hosted over a network, this script also isolates the newly created record:

                   New Record/Request
                   Show All Records
                   Omit Records
                   Show Omitted Only

                   But in networked systems, there's a small chance that another user could create a new record in the same table just before the show omitted step executes and then you get two records instead of one.
