hi experts,

i need to set a field to be unique. when the admin key in the idNum and click submit, the syst will notify the admin if the idNum has been used and the admin can just change the value in the same form. i have no prob getting this on notes client, but how do i go about it for the web?

You can use an Input Validation formula for the field. They work on the Web as well as in the Notes client.

Except... don't use @Text(@DocumentUniqueId)... use your own field (in text) instead.
