Does anyone know how to prevent a record from being entered more the once. In ALPHA4 I could use the field lookup rules to prevent this from happening. Where in ALPHA5V4 can I find this rule.

Thanks,

Elson

Elson,

The validation field rules include an option to require that a particular field value be 'unique' before the record can be saved. This can be used to prevent records from being saved with duplicate keys, for example. There are other ways to do this but perhaps this is what you are looking for.
