In Topic: Limiting records in a list box

Oops I was hopeful that Darren's solution would work. The Lsexit exited the selection cycle but did not drop the records in the list box. What did I miss doing? Darren any thoughts?

Thanks everyone for your input. Darren your solution was exactly what I was hoping to find. It worked exactly the way I wanted.
When I get to the 501 record I save the key then enable a next Icon and lsexit. I also saved my start range to create a previous icon. It worked just as I hoped without the need for temp files.

Thanks Anthony for your reply. However I did try that previously and it works if you are selecting records in key order. If you do any kind of order by then you can actually be missing records because the ROWNUM is assigned before the reordering.


Let's say the key is INVOICE NUMBER if the list box is selecting records ordered by invoice number ROWNUM works fine. But if
you select by SHIP DATE. ORDER BY SHIP DATE it will seelct the first 500 records that meet the criteria. leaving out other invoices that may fall somewhere in the range but have a higer invoice number.

This is exactly what happened at one customer site. The customer was complaining that not all the records were being displayed. We realized that ROWNUM was assigned before the orderby.

I was hoping there was someway to control the data in PRO-IV.

Thanks again,

I have had the same problem. The user clicks to sort on let's say a date column. Select a record that calls a Global function then
when the global is exited the list box refreshes but is sorted by the original sort not the date.

Have you been able to overcome this issue?

Hi Chris,

We have not used VIP yet but do use DEV Studio. It works fine. We did have a problem initially when trying to use Dev Studio on Open VMS 7.2. We installed a patch to TCPIP and that fixed the problem.
