zero related records

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere - or if the answer is obvious and I'm being stupid:

In FM 6 and earlier, if go-to-related-record found no matches, the Found Count would be zero. That seems no longer to be the case. I haven't discovered any Get formula that will allow me to display a message when there are no related records.

Where have they hidden it?

In FM7 or later, get(FoundCount) will return the number of records in the found set. In prior versions, use Status(CurrentFoundCount).

But for GTRR, you should test for the presence of related records prior to the Go to Related Records[] script step:

If [ count(relationship::recordID) = 0 ]

#No related records

Else

Go to Related Records [ relationship ; Show only related ]

End If

Thanks a million. I knew it had to be there somewhere. It certainly was easier (fewer steps) the old way.

IsEmpty( relationship::recor dID ) may be a quicker test.
