I am using FOCUS 7.2.3 on VM. I have a FOCUS database that needs to be updated manually by my users. They would like a scrollable update screen that contains one record per line and they would like to update one or more records from the screen. I have been playing around with CRTFORM, but I can't figure out how to do this. Is this possible or is there a better way? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not having much luck with the FOCUS manuals.
I wouldn't recommend using MODIFYTALK. What you're asking for is a MODIFY routine the uses the SPA for updating multiple records. Contact IBI customer support. They should be able to provide a simple example that you can modify.
Have you considered Maintain? We have an object called the Grid that allows you do change or enter multiple fields in multiple records at one time, and then update it to the database. It is VERY easy to design screens on VM with the MPAINT command.
