(Archived) Unique record identifiers

Recommended Posts

Thanks. "Not relevant to end users" - as envisaged by EN. But EN is astoundingly powerful with a couple of non-programming workarounds, far beyond the stuff I've read here so far. I'm a novice fooling around with database use, it would be more precise to be able to unambiguously identify a record (for correction/deletion purposes, e.g.), particularly where the lack of user-defined field functionality prevents one from inserting counters etc.

(I guess I'd be underestimating you folks if I dared point out that EN could fairly easily take out everyday uses of FileMakerPro, Bento, MS-1N7, Mac Journler, MSXL, MSOL/MacMail Notes, MSOL tasks and handwritten/margin-indexed notebooks. I think I've done it for my purposes with a couple of pseudo-user-defined-fields, pseudo-templates, export/import to MSXL, text-to-num conversion & a pivot table. If these functions + enterprise/authorized-user options were intrinsic while retaining xPlatform/mobile/web access + fast/simple entry/search + intuitive learning curve, EN would be the app of the century).
