Help! I'm new to database design and am stuck with an error message
I have a check box field in my layout called Current Attend Date. It lists a date say 3/18/2013 with a check box next to it. During data entry we check that box to indicate a student is attending classes starting on said date. Lately, when I try to check the box I get an error message: "This button requires field to be active. Press tab or click field to make active." But no matter how often I try to click or tab to the field, it doesn't activate.
I tried Deleting the field and recreating it, but no go. I also need this box checked so I can search the database for students attending on a certain date.
I've learned to use this program using the tutorials which are helpful, but I don't understand the ins and outs yet.
I don't think that's a standard FileMaker Error message. It sounds like a message displayed by a script in a custom dialog box.
If so, you'll need to figure out what script is displaying this message and why.
