Hi All,

I have the following three alphanumeric columns in my table:

Organization_ID (Unique)
Parent_ID
Child_ID

The Child_ID is comma delimited, so a parent can have multiple children.

I'm trying to make it so that when a User updates the Organization_ID it will update in the Parent_ID and Child_ID. I'm fine with these being two separate Update commands. Also can you please tell me how can I report orphaned units as well?

Thanks,
MK

To clarify the User would only be updating the Organization_ID. It should then push to either the Parent_ID and/or Child_ID

Update the Parent_ID or Child_ID with what? If the Organization_ID changes, how does that impact either of the other columns?

Thanks for the reply. I just realized that the Child update portion won't work because there are multiple values.

Basically when a User update Organization_ID I want to run an Update Command that Updates the Parent_ID value of all of its children since, in this case, the Organization_ID and Parent_ID should remain the same.

Thanks,
MK
