    duplicate notification (97)

    I was wondering if there was any way to be instantly notified if a field has been duplicated. The first field on my form is Call# and set to Primary Key. But it doesn't notify if it's a duplicate until I've entered the entire record and try to save it. It seems like a waste of time to enter the entire record before you find out you've duplicated it. Any suggestions?

    Look up the DLOOKUP function in the builtin help. Use it in the Before Update event code for CALL# to see whether the value already exists.
