Look up sets created as text format
Currently using Records Manager 8.1
We have several look up sets that have been created as a text format.
One of our business groups has pointed out that whilst users can select multiple items from the look up set (which is needed) staff can also use this field as free text (which is not wanted).
Can anyone tell me if they have done anything in this area and been able to stop this or is this a feature of the program that an not be stopped.
Thanks in dvance
Yes, the String Field type validates but only allows a single value whereas the Text field allows multiple values but does not validate.
The only solution I see is to write a Record addin to valiate on save, this would require some programming.
I could potentially put together a sample if you are in a position to use a Record add-in?
I seem to not be getting email notifications otherwise I would have replied sooner.
Using an addin to validate would prevent the user from saving the record until the field passed validation.
