      Excuse my ignorance - I need to know if  a contact has already been added

      Post

      Hello!

       

      I am a complete novice and was wondering if there is a way stop imputting a customer twice.

       

      i am using the Business Productivity Solution that Filemaker offers as a free download, and juts amending it to what i need.

      So, I have a contacts table with first name, last name and email fields (among others) I also have first and last names merged at the top, to quickly see whose record i'm on.

      I need to know if i can have a warning window flash if the first and last names (and possibly the email) match any contact that already exists.

       

      Please be as simple in your answer as possible.

       

      Many thanks for any help you can give!

       

      Tania.
