Hi everone!!

I ve got another lil problem i would like to ask you guys about.
How can i keep track of modifications on a layout.

Is it possible to keep an eye out on, lets say, 10 fields from a given layout.

IF any of those fields are modified, a flag could be raised and i could take the appropriate steps to warn the user about this, when required.

I know about the isempty function, but what if the field already as data, and that data is modified, how can i capture this?

Again thx for all your hlp..

Sounds like you're looking for an audit log. There are custom functions that will do this. There is also a nice FM7 demo at Ray Cologon's site. There is also an extensive open source audit trail being built on FM Forums.

Hope that helps.

Yup, this is exactly what i need. I can modify it some more just to flag the user of any changes, so they can activate a refresh button that will be visible to them when this auditlog functions finds that data was changed.

Thx again for your help..
