Re: Restricting a query

2017-07-31 Thread Chip Scheide via 4D_Tech
You can also filter BEFORE query. for simplicity: Query([table];[table]client_ID = $Current_Client_ID) Query selection([table]) This will open 4D's query editor, and apply the query the user does to the selection you created before hand. On Mon, 31 Jul 2017 11:34:12 -0700 (MST), jarosz via
