Operations Properties for Advanced Recordset Fields
The Operations tab for the Advanced Recordset Field Properties dialog box provides
the following options for configuring operations to be executed before or after
writing to a recordset field:
- Execute operation before writing to fieldSelect a configured
operation to be executed before data is written to the selected field.
- Execute operation to autotab on underfillSelect a configured
operation to be executed when recordset field data does not completely fill
in the length of the field.
Tip: Create an operation that automatically tabs to the next input field
or an operation that traps an error. For example, if the data input is always
a set length, like a social security number, create an operation that includes
an error pattern
as an operation condition.
Note: The option is typically used with character mode hosts. When data
doesn't fill the recordset field, the behavior of a character mode host application
can often be less predictable than a block mode host application.
- Execute operation after writing to fieldSelect a configured
operation to be executed after data is written to the selected field.
