Title

Grab GPS location info from 'off form' fields in Contacts database

Post

I'm using the Contacts database supplied with FileMaker Pro 13 as a 'Starter Solution'.

In View, Layout Mode, their appear to be helper fields for use with the mapping function (showing the google map) location.

The field is "Contacts::Location GPS".  I would like to create fields for lat/long which captures these fields (given an address of the contact) so that I can later perform some 'distance from' calculations.

I'm a TOTAL filemaker newbie, so please show some pity.

 

Thanks for the help.

 

Andrew
