Commit Records/Requests [Skip data entry validation; With dialog: On/Off; Force Commit]
Skip data entry validation overrides any data entry validation options set for fields and commits the record anyway. This option only skips validation for fields set with the Only during data entry validation option in the Options for Field dialog box; fields set to Always validate will still validate, even if the Skip data entry validation option is selected. See Defining field validation.
With dialog specifies whether to display a dialog box when the script step is performed, asking users to confirm the commit action.
Note  Setting With dialog to Off only applies when Save record changes automatically is cleared in the Layout preferences.
Override ESS locking conflicts allows clients of ODBC data sources to force-commit changes when optimistic locking otherwise prevents the commit action. ODBC data sources are also referred to as external SQL sources (ESS).
