mnbenz

previous find

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have a solution for a find script to allow finding the record one before the last find???

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think that is what mnbenz is after.

He wants to find the record whose number/ID is one below the one just found.

If he finds 'Jill', he then wants to get 'Jack' - assuming alphabetical order.

mnbenz, if I'm right, do you want the previous record in the prior unsorted found set, the previous record in the prior sorted found set, the previous record in the full sorted/unsorted set?

Hope that makes sense.

I often feel we should have a poll about the meaning of a question...

Thank you gor responding. Let me clarify my question.

I do a find (A), deal with the info etc.

I do another find (??? and do the same.

I now want to go beack to find (A) without having to re-type the find information.

I would like to know if thre's any tecnique to perform a scrip along with the find command to first store the find in some varaiable to be recalled after another find had been executed?

I hope that I am making myself clear.....

Thanks again

If your find is scripted, you can store the requests in a table and restore it on the fly. User can even name it like it would do with a Mac OS X "smart folder".

The best technique I've seen so far (by Ugo Di Luca), is storing the layout object names and their contents, so restoring the requests is very fast. You'll need to name every field object though, which I would advise anyway.

Here is Ugo's file. Just look at the two scripts.

Yes, what fun! Can't help thinking about the poor guy who just wanted a very simple answer until I butted in and corrected(?) you on getasboolean.

Hi

Thanks for your response, just wasn't able to open the attachment. (I am using Windows XP) and I do not read French (Sorry...)

Help!

Hi Fabrice,

where did you pull this file from. Ugo usually converts his stuff to English when he posts here?

I also couldn't get far into it, I kept getting that "TO is missing", if I recall correctly.

The idea is an 'object' script. Just copy/paste the scripts into your solution, name your layout objects... and that's all folks!

Got it from a French speaking forum... that's why this funny language is not translated here.

I will try to translate it tonight if you can't get into it.
