Removing duplicates from a list

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I am trying to solve the following problem

In list view I want to give the user the means to click a button at the top of the list and for that to produce a list of unique values in a seperate window for a given field

It needs to work only for the found set. I can manage the setting up of the list using the list function and the new window, but the bit I am struggling with is the removal of duplicates from the list

If someone could give me a few pointers that would be great

Many thanks

For what purpose?

using the list function

In version 8?!

Your profile says 8 -- the List function appeared in 8.5. At any rate, the List function wouldn't help you with the found set.

One method would be to make a layout with a subsummary part and no body part. When you sort by the subsummary's break field, you'd see only the unique values.

If you wanted the list in a text field, a scripted loop comes to mind.
