Formula lookup for large domains


If you have a large domain with hundreds of rooms and dozens of organizational units, this Formula lookup can help you perform a narrow search for a specific room in a certain OU. The code can be used on custom forms or when customizing your mail template for meetings.

xxReserve := @PickList( [Custom]:
[Single]; "<Replica ID>" ; "($Rooms)" ;
 "Please select the products you want to order" ;
 "Get a Room";2;"<OU Category>");
FIELD RoomToReserve := @Trim(@Unique(xxReserve));
@If( xxReserve = "";


Here, the trim and unique code only needs to be computed once:

xxReserve := @Trim(@Unique
(@PickList( [Custom]:[Single]; "
<Replica ID>" ; "($Rooms)" ; 
"Please select the products you want to order" ;
 "Get a Room";2;"<OU Category>")));
FIELD RoomToReserve := xxReserve;
