Good Afternoon Charlie,

> I thought this would be easy since I have done this before but the apply locate is never found.  tgrade is what i am trying to find.  actually it represents a field in the table.  so that isn't the problem (yet) because this never finds tid and cat which are also strings.

if form.invedatamodule1.inve.rowset.applylocate("full ='"+mlastitem+"'")

The above line is working perfectly for me and is executed more times
than I can count.

I have also faced issues with applylocate() in the past. And it is damn
difficult to debug it in the form.

I would suggest that you execute the following commands after filling in
the blanks from the command window.

q = new query()
q.sql = "" = true
?q.rowset.applylocate("year= '" + tid + "'")
if the above line returns false then try the following

?q.rowset.applylocate("year= '2024'")

Also check for datatype mismatch.
