    Help with relationship and script



      Help with relationship and script


      I am a very new user, started to use FileMaker only yesterday.

      The application I am working on is a woodcarving competition registration system. I have created a Table has three Files 

      Members ==> includes personal information like name, address ..

      Competition ==> includes information about the carving entered into the competition like Level, Category, Tag#....

      TagNumber ==> has one record per level including the current tag # for that level.


      Relationships :

      Members::member # = Competition::member # (one to many)

      Competition:: level = TagNumber:: level (many to one)


      Competition layout has a portal including all all carvings entered into the competition

      When the user enters into the portal of the competition layout and tabs into Tag # field I would like to

      1. go to the TagNumber file where the Competition:: level = TagNumber:: level

      2. Increase theTagNumber::CurrentTag# by 1

      3. Retrieve this increased value into Competition::tag#.


      I don't want to write down haw many things are tried with the only result to learn what will not work.


      I feel this should be quite simple to accomplish within FilMaker Pro 11, but I would need some help to get me into the right direction.


      Every help is much appreciated.

      Thank you
