Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Could you view the record?
One possibility is the the library that the file is in has an attribute of *PROD and the session you are runnning the DFU in is in DEBUG mode.
do ENDDBG and try again.

    I could not update a record via DFU... So... what happened instead? A message? Did DFU report updates in its summary? Is the file "updateable"? Tom

    But not if it’s a join logical. As long as it's updatable, you can. Updatable joins have been available for a few years now. Tom

    Learn something new every day. I haven't even tried to update a join logical in ages, so I wasn't aware of the change.

    The capability came with SQL INSTEAD OF triggers. You can create a trigger that determines how updates should be applied. It doesn't take much experimentation to understand why it's not an easy concept to implement -- but it can be done. Tom
