Update table using multiple datawindows and PFC

Hi all,

The question title says it all;  how do I update one database table using multiple datawindows (pointing to the same table) and PFC?

Here is the situation (simplified):

1 window with the following:
  -  3 command buttons
  -  1 tab control with 2 tab pages
     -  On tabpage 1, there is 1 datawindow.
     -  On tabpage 2, there is a tab control with 5 tabpages.  Each tabpage has 1 datawindow

All the datawindows are pointing to 1 table.  There is a 'New' button that resets & inserts a row into the datawindows, allowing the user to enter a new thing.  

When the user clicks Apply, the program calls the pfc_Save function.  It results in an error (duplicate primary key) when it attempts to update the 1st datawindow on the 2nd tabpage.

I understand why it is giving me the error but need help with the solution.  Why it's giving me the error?  The first datawindow inserts a row into the table successfully.  However, the 2nd datawindow attempts to insert a row using the same primary key.  The 2nd datawindow should perform an update, not an insert.  Please help!

Questions?  Please ask.

hi,

what u need to do is change the status of the rows u need to update to Datamodified! which will create an update statement. The status of all ur dws in ur case is NewModified! and hence creating an insert  statement.

try the following to change the status of ur rows in datawindows other than dw_1.....

dwItemStatus l_status
l_status = dw_rpt.GetItemStatus(1, 0, Primary!)
IF l_status = NewModified! THEN
     dw_rpt.SetItemStatus(1, 0,Primary!, DataModified!)
END IF

do ask if u need more assistance...

Cheers,
Rosh
