Hi All, I need one help regarding to the comparing string data between two fields.

My Requirement is:

I am storing 5 fields into the temporary variables from the online screen, and I want to ask user to reenter the same data again. After re entering the data I need to check the data of present and previous (which is stored in temporary fields). If both of the values matches then I need to update the database. For this I am confusing how to compare the string data. Can any one of you please let me know how to proceed? I am thinking that we can use either String or Inspect.

Thanks!
Rat....

Hi There,

I think we can directly compare both the variable

If temp-var = screen-var
update the database
End-if.

Let me know if i misunderstood question
