ODBC Query in Formscape

ODBC Query in Formscape

(OP)
Hi,
I am searching for a solution and I hope you can help me.

We have created a label that is being printed. There is a partid on the label. So far so good.
Now there is a SQLserver which holds a tabel. Every time a label is printed, it must look in the SQL table for that particular partid and retrieve a certain field.
I got it working so far that it retrieves the first field of the table, but not the record I want.
Basically I want to print the field with the query:
select quantity from table where partid = <partid that is in the printjob>.

Doesn't look that difficult and many of you would say it isn't smile

I used <text><lookup><odbc-query>. Somewhere in that tree it says <key>. I suspect I must do something with that field. Linking it to the partid-field in the page did not do it for me...

Please help...

Kind regards,
Willem
