Report duplicates in unique fields

In 4D v15 R3, the way to detect duplicates in fields declared as unique has been enhanced so that users have a mean to know which are the offending fields.

What’s new? All the offending fields are now displayed in an error message or in the log.

Duplicates can be reported through 2 different ways:

  • when 4D needs to create indexes on a database with offending fields.
  • during an MSC Verify scan.

REPLACE STRING is faster

In 4D v15 R3, the algorithm of the REPLACE STRING command has been enhanced to make replacements on large amounts of data faster. In our tests replacing 32,000 occurrences, the new algorithm makes the command an average of 4000 times faster than the old one.
