Subject Re: [IBO] Auto-resolve conflicting auto-numbers

Hans, if you are referring to the "auditable series" ti, then yes I
have read it. The technique presented is more of a server centric
approach - what I want to do is do it mostly on the client, with the
help of IB_Query.OnError event if possible. What I understand based on
discussions on this list is that most people use OnError to customize
error messages. Is there a way to use this event as a "correct-error
and re-post" spot as I've described in my original post? Is there
another event for this purpose?

Thanks in advance.
