Pre-update Validation property

Previous Next

This is where you specify the action(s) that must be executed when an end user begins to update a record in the table. This occurs if, after updating the contents of an existing record, the end user moves the cursor to another record, chooses Store from the Record menu, chooses an option for the Query menu, or closes the window and answers Yes to the question "Save data manipulations?"

Using this property enables you to validate that the data can be updated. If one of the actions associated with the Pre-update Validation property calls the ErrorRaise() action, then the update is not executed.

For more information on when this property is handled relative to other similar properties, please refer to the help index entries on Events.
