FINDLAST Function (RecordRef)
Finds the last record in a table based on the current key and filter.
[Ok :=] RecordRef.FINDLAST
The RecordRef that refers to the table in which you want to find the last record.
If the record is not found and if you omitted the return value, a run-time error occurs.
Property Value/Return Value
true if the record was found; otherwise, false.
If you omit this optional return value and if the record cannot be found, a run-time error occurs. If you include a return value, it is assumed that you will handle any errors.
You should use this function instead of FIND('+') when you need only the last record.
You should use this function only when you explicitly want to find the last record in a table or set. Do not use this function in combination with REPEAT..UNTIL.
The following example opens the Item table (27) as a RecordRef variable that is named ItemRecref. The FINDLAST function searches for the last record in the table. If the record is found, the description and unit price of the item in the record are displayed in a message box. Otherwise, a message that indicates that the last item was not found is displayed. This example requires that you create the following variable and text constant in the C/AL Globals window.
|Text constant name||DataType||ENU value|
|Text000||Text||The last item is %1 and the unit price is %2.|
|Text001||Text||The last item was not found.|
ItemRecref.OPEN(27); IF ItemRecref.FINDLAST THEN MESSAGE(Text000, ItemRecref.FIELD(3), ItemRecref.FIELD(18)) ELSE MESSAGE(Text001);
