I have available to use dBase IV 1.0 . I would like to be able to make
a pick list out of a names database to plug into a billing database.
The user should be able to enter a name (or partial) into a memory variable and then the system should search the names database and present a pick list starting with the closest match if the name is not existing. The user should then be able to cursor down to the correct name , hit enter and have that name entered into the memory variable. The system should then return to data entry screen.
I've done this sort of thing in Clipper but can't figure out how to get it done
in db4 1.0
Any help appreciated.
