    Default Field Rule Record Events

    I am trying to make a field rule event for the OnSaveRecord event of my Job table to add a record to my Jobnotes table. But how do I get at the value in the BIDLINK field?

    I may be entering a record from a browse or a form where I don't know the name, and I may not have the value of BIDLINK actually on the form...

    newjob = :this.tables.job.bidlink.value '

    Well gosh Steve, why don't you try

    ''XBasic
    newjob = job->bidlink
    ui_msg_box("What we got","newjob = "+newjob,UI_OK)

    It can be very enlightening to READ THE MANUAL (and play with the trace window)

    Most everyone else seems to be at the conference, I am so glad you are still here...

    I was just being silly.
    I would very much like to be at the conference, plus it is much quieter here today... It is just as well I am not there as I have some essential work I can't delegate.

    My question was genuine - then I figured it out for myself -so I answered it.

    Steve:
    I also would like to be at the conference, but a 14 hour drive is just to far.
    Have you heard any updates on version 5 or how we can get info on what is happening?
