 Hi Das,
I am building a variable smartlist from a schema class already partially filled with data.So, $excludefromupdate might not help.Omnis support have tried to assist but have given up.This forum remains my last stop before I also give up on working with smartlists.
Rgds Martin.

Normally with Postgres and Omnis you would want to $excludefromupdates() and $excludefrominserts() on your primary key. Postgres needs them excluded from the insert and update commands.

This is one quandary I have.

They don’t seem to work for $dowork()

I had a smartest, was doing $dowork() and couldn’t get $excludefromupdates() and $excludefrominserts() to work. The column was still in the SQL generated. 

Curious what others feel about this. Is it true what I experienced or not?

Or was I just jammed somehow, not seeing the truth?
