Is there any function to get the fields that are part of the primary key in Navision Attain? Something like getcurrentkey ?

Any idea of how can I develop that?

Thanks.

    maybe getposition fits your needs...
    myrec.get(a,b,c);
    message(myrec.getposition);

    Yes, that's what I need, but this method do not exist in version 2.5.
    Any solution?

    It rings me a bell that it exists a method that you can get the value of a field in a record just knowing the name of the field but I don´t remember.

    My code would be:
    vKey:=record.currentkey();
    while (existKeyField(vKey)) begin
           vKeyField:=getKeyField(vKey);
           vKeyValue:=record.FUNCTION(vkeyField)
    end;
    

    I need FUNCTION.

    Thanks,

    :mrgreen: i forgot that getposition is not so old...unfortunately, recordref and fieldref are not stable in your version (if they exist), so i can't imagine a different solution :-k

    Why do you need this? It might be better to try thinking out side the box and do this another way.

    i had the sam issue, solved with a simple function:

    RecRef.OPEN(parTableNo);
    PrimaryKeyText := FORMAT(RecRef.CURRENTKEY);
