This is UV11 I'm currently running on
if you have X=TRANS("SOMEFILE","ID",1,'X')
I haven't found any way to programmatically determine that SOMEFILE doesn't exist from the TRANS() read
aside from executing a TRANS("VOC","SOMEFILE",-1,'X") first to see if it's in the VOC at all - if I go that route
might as well switch to an OPEN/READ
I've tried V and C vs ('X') - X and V trigger a runtime warning - but if it's running as a phantom
that doesn't help. C will return the ID if it doesn't exist - or if the combo of file/id doesn't exist
I can always swap to an OPEN / READ and have the OPEN trigger the file doesn't exist
but trying to reduce my OPENs for TRANS() for those 1x read only requests and use
OPEN only with WRITEs or if I need to lock a record on READ.
Any other ideas other than preface with a VOC read?
