Finds the first record in a table based on the current key and filter.
[Ok :=] Record.FINDFIRST
- Type: RecordIf the record is found, then it is returned in this parameter and any FlowFields in the record are set to zero. You must update the FlowFields by using the CALCFIELDS Function (Record).If the record is not found and if you omit the return value, then a run-time error occurs.
Property Value/Return Value
true if the record was found; otherwise, false.
If you omit this optional return value and the record is not found, then a run-time error occurs. If you include a return value, then you must handle any errors.
This function should be used instead of FIND('-') when you only need the first record.
You should only use this function when you explicitly want to find the first record in a table or set. Do not use this function in combination with REPEAT.. UNTIL.
This example requires that you create the following variable.
Sales & Receivables Setup
This example also assumes that you have a ConfigurePost function.
// Read the first record only. IF SalesSetupRec.FINDFIRST THEN BEGIN ConfigurePost(SalesSetupRec); END;
