I have a shift report that submits data to a database that works fine.
I have three buttons on the report
One to submit to the database
One to review data from the database
And one to clear the data displayed in the form not the database (New record)
Is there any way of putting a are you sure warning box on the clear data button so the operator has to think did I submit all the data before clearing the form.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

Yah this is pretty simple.

Add a field (boolean / True / False) to your form named submit.

Default if False

Add another action to your submit that sets the submit field to true

Add a condition to your reset button that if Submit is false prompt a warning that says please submit or press reset again. Have an action that sets submit to true.

Are you doing the reset action?  You will need to make it a rules type. and then have an open and close action.

I often set the record number to 0 and run a query to reset my form to blank values rather than using the packaged reset, which is essentially closing and reopening the form.
