Check if table is empty when accessing datapage

Question

On a submission form that add records to table A.  I have a field that uses a dropdown control that lookup values from  table B.

My problem is that if table B is empty the submission form won't work well.

So,  how can a raise an alert on this submission form to inform the user that he first needs to add values to table B?  

It's something that before the user submits anything,  the system will identify that the lookup table is empty and raise an alert.

Thanks for your help!

Hi LuluSW,

I would suggest adding "Any" option to your drop-down.

You can allow a user to add an option to the drop-down by using concept described in this article.

Hope this helps.
