try VENDORS::VENDOR_NAME & ¶ ¶ & "We are happy to hear from you."
with that other text not being in quotes Filemaker is trying to find a field with that name.
I had tried putting the other text (below the field) in quotes, but that didn't help at all.
However, your suggestion of using "&" was just what I needed.
Funny that the URL exmaple above from FileMaker itself looks like it would work (but I bet it doesn't). They probably didn't test it.
Thanks very much.
P.S. Here's the same confusing dialog (at bottom) for version 10:
(based on my experience, this example would not work without the "&")
That screen shot definitely looks to be in error. (You've posted two different links to the same article (7133) so you see the same info in both.)
Actually, I thought they were for two versions of the software.
Oops...I guess they both just link to the same page.
Sorry 'bout that.
I've sent a message to TSGal to take a look at this so that it can be corrected. I'm guessing someone typed that text in and then captured the screenshot without ever Clicking OK and thus didn't trip the error message it should have produced.
Thank you for your posts.
"PhilModJunk" alerted me to the incorrect screen shot, and the article has been updated with a new screen shot. You can view the updated Knowledge Base Article at:
Cool, thanks. Great job. :)
