Problem with find script step.

I have a script that before doing it's magic, checks to make sure that a specific record exists. Each record has a unique record number. I enter the find mode, set the record number to a global containing the number I am checking, and preform find. It works too well. If my record is 1001, and I enter a 1 in the global, it finds 1001. Any clues?

Another way of doing this job would be to make a self-join with your global entry field and your unique ID field. Your script would test:

If (IsValid(g_Entry::UniqueID))

[do what you do when you have a match]

else

[do what you do when you don't have a match]

End If

IsValid will return a zero if it can't find a match and a one if it can.

I use this in a script I'm working on to set up a book inventory. If the user inputs an ISBN that has already been inputted, my script finds the first record and ups the quantity by one, else it makes a new record & etc.
