How do I enter a key value (such as an employee number) in a column of the DataWindow object, to retrieve that record. Thank You.

Hi Arthur;

1) Make sure that the DWO you are using for data entry has the data entry retrieval column's "Tab Order" > 0 (unprotected).

2) Using the ItemChanged event on the DW or another control like a CommandButton (menu, etc), use a GetItemXxxx() command to access the DW's column data that was just entered.

3) From Step #2, now use the Retrieve() command passing in the new key value.

Regards ... Chris

Sounds like query mode. F1-Help has examples of using DataWindow query mode
