Subject Re: [IBO] Clone a Dataset?
Simply set up a second query which just looks for the field
you want to check.

Post the value that is entered as a parameter and if a match
is fould set the error.

I think you could do this in the OnDataChange when the field
in question is changed, but there are probably better ways.
( I always use a pop-up and do the checks on exit from the
relevent edit box )
