Report duplicates in unique fields

Automatically translated from English

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.

Index creation

In this case, an error is displayed with the list of offending fields.

MSC dialog

MSC Verify scan

The log file contains the list of offending fields as shown below.

For more details, please take a look at the 4D v15 R3 Upgrade manual.
