Disable apple-D in 8.0 v3?

Recommended Posts

Can I disable the apple-D command in 8.0 v.3? I'm having trouble with workers duplicating records accidentally, not being aware they have done it, and then we find redundant records later, with info added on both records. I just want to disable the command and don't know if I can do it without advanced fmp. Any help is appreciated.

The best way to do this is with Custom Menus: completely remove the Duplicate command form the menu.

I think Custom Menus were introduced in FMP 8.5, and you'll need Advanced to edit them.

While you're there, get rid of "Delete All Records" too.

Just as a general correction, custom menus came along in FM8.0.

If you don't have Advanced, you can still affect the menus with Privileges. You'll have to shut down a bunch of other menu commands along with Duplicate though.

I don't have advanced. I guess when we upgrade the next time I need to get advanced.

What other menu items would have to be disabled if I disabled it in 8.0 standard?
