How do I Validate Request Page Parameters on Submit?

How do I Validate Request Page Parameters on Submit?

I have created a request page with various parameter fields (Browser Scripting Controls) which will update Maximo. Each Parameter field has a drop down list which can be populated from either typing a value or from a pick list.

I can check whether a parameter field has a value entered on submit, but how do I validate a free text input with values on the database when the submit button is pressed?

RE: How do I Validate Request Page Parameters on Submit?

One way or another, you're going to have to access the DB based on the free test field.

Your report that receives the param from the form could have a Seql Section  where the first report does nothing but fires a SQL using the text field as a key. If something comes back, proceed to report 2, else have a report 3 that replies invalid input to the user.

See SelectContent() method in Seq section to control whether to allow report 2 or 3 to execiye after 1 has checked the text field against DB.
