Auto IDs

Auto IDs

Hello, again!

I have a table with your standard Update window and procedure that works fine.  When a new record is created, the ID field is incremented by one in the new record automatically.

Now I have some Embedded code trying to create a new record manually in the same table:

   TABLE1:Field1 = TABLE2:Field1

I'm not specifying the TABLE:ID field assuming the system would increment the value automatically.  But, the new record is created and the assigned values are saved to each field -- except the ID field which is always 0.

I'm now assuming I have to specify TABLE:ID = -- but to what?

RE: Auto IDs


You may use this code  in place of add(<tableName>)



This should do it


RE: Auto IDs


That code looks odd to me.  I got 4 Syntax Errors when I compiled the program with those recommended changes.  

We have Clarion 5.  Is that code only supported in a higher version?

RE: Auto IDs

It should work with Clarion 4 and above , what are the errors you are getting ?




RE: Auto IDs


Just Access:<tableName>.Insert() should be enough as PrimeAutoInc might add a empty row/record.


RE: Auto IDs

Okay, here's the code I used:
! Create New Prospect
! First, check if not flagged Selected or flagged Ignore

IF CO:SalesProspectSelected = 0 OR CO:SalesProspectIgnore = 1
    MESSAGE('"' & CLIP(CO:CompanyNameLong) & '" is not flagged as SELECTED or flagged as IGNORE','ERROR: Cannot Create New Prospect')
    ! Select Portfolio
    DO SyncWindow
    GlobalRequest = SelectRecord
    LocalRequest = OriginalRequest
    DO RefreshWindow

    IF MESSAGE(CLIP(CO:CompanyNameLong) & ' to ' & CLIP(SPORT:Salesperson) & ' - ' & CLIP(SPORT:Name ) & '?','Assign...',ICON:Question,BUTTON:Yes+BUTTON:No,BUTTON:Yes) = BUTTON:Yes

        SLSPROSP:PortfolioID = SPORT:ID
        SLSPROSP:PortfolioName = SPORT:Name
        SLSPROSP:Salesperson = SPORT:Salesperson

        SLSPROSP:CompanyCode = CO:Company
        SLSPROSP:CompanyPriority = CO:CoPriority
        SLSPROSP:ClientRelationship = '

        SLSPROSP:DateAddedtoPortfolio = TODAY()
        SLSPROSP:AddedToPortfolioBy = Usr:UserName
        SLSPROSP:DateCreated = TODAY()

!        ADD(SALESProspects)

        ! Update Company, if no Error
        IF ERROR() = '
            CO:SalesProspectAssigned = 1
            CO:SalesProspectAdded = TODAY()

    !    GlobalRequest = ChangeRecord
    !    UpdatePipelineOverview

        ForceRefresh = True
        DO RefreshWindow

And here is the compile window results:

Making sales010.obj (sales 010.clw changed)
Making sales010.clw
(sales010.clw 316,37) Syntax error: Field not found:INSERT
(sales010.clw 316,17) Syntax error: Unknown procedure label


RE: Auto IDs


You are using the LEGACY template - Access:<tableName>.Insert() is ABC.

Declare an ALIAS for the SALESProspects and use the ALIAS file to find the next ID. Do a loop check for duplicates in case two users are trying at the same time.



   IF ERRORCODE() = 43
      <IDColumn> += 1
      !handle error


RE: Auto IDs


Correction. It should be IF ERRORCODE() = 40 ! DupKeyErr ...
