Hey there,

Trying to use adotable locate to find a row in a database, the row must has two things it must match. The name and the number.

So I used this

If Adotable1.Locate('name;number', VarArrayOf(['bob', '123']), []) then....

but it dosn't match it, yet I do have a record of that in the database.
Anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong?
name and number are the colums. bob and 123 are the name and number to locate.

Cheers
Nick

May be you have 'Bob' instead of 'bob' in the table

Adotable1.Locate('name;number', VarArrayOf(['bob', '123']), [loCaseInsensitive])

Argh shoot!
I found the problem, it was after the statement.
It was returning true, and doing what it had to do, then right afterwards I had it un-doing it.

:(
Sorry chaps

You should give the points to yourself :)

The funny thing is that by me (Oracle) loCaseInsensitive doesn't matter and loPartialKey doesn't work. And it finds not only 'Bob', but also ' bob' and 'bob '.

Best Regards,
Mottor
