Record list

A record list is a specific form displaying pertinent field values from each record found in the search. If you have not created a customized record list form for this list, Service Manager will create one (<filename>.qbe) based on key fields defined in the database dictionary for the file.
Select a record from the list by positioning the cursor on the desired record and double-clicking or pressing Enter.

  • If the search criteria uniquely defines only one record, that record opens using the form used to define the search or the one defined by a form name in the record, depending on format control.
  • If the search criteria does not find any records, Database Manager returns the message: No records found to satisfy record list search argument(s).
