We have a FM 5 Unlimited with several dbs. One of them is a simple bibliographic database with a search-result form.

Now, our customers asked us on the possibility of customizing the result list throgh a web based form. Just before submiting the search, a radio-button based form asks user which fields he wants to see on the list result.

Is it possible to do on the same form? (The selection and the search)

We have found a solution in two steps: First a form with -edit change the values (1,0) of global fields, and after that the result page is the search page where the user introduces the request. The result page, the list, is based on the global values (If m_author=1 then show author...).

But the problem appears when two o more searches are done simultaneously. After selecting fields to show, if just before introducing the search another user change the variables of fields to show, the firs one will have the list results based on the second user selection.

Does anyone have a solution?
