Remove fields 1 and 2 from your layout. Now they will not be visible when in form view. Switch to table view and add fields 1 and 2 to your layout, clear the check box for field 3 from this same dialog to hide it.
Now you will have Fields 1 and 2 visible in table view and only field 3 visible in form view.
While that works, it's often a better approach to use one layout for your list or table view and a different layout for your form view. A button in the header of your table view layout (There's a setting in layout setup that makes the header visible when in table view) can be used to switch from your table view layout to your form view layout.
Thanks for the quick answer.
That worked a treat, although it does seem a little backwards the way in which you go about it. Create a field, remove a field, create a field.
Like I say I'm new so I'm sure I'll start to pick things up. Is it worth me joining the TechNet to get the training guides for $9.99? Are they a good read/watch?
Is it best practice then to create your Database in the Layout View?
I don't see where this creates any fields. Don't you already have these fields in your table? It's just a matter of configuring your layout or layouts to display the fields you need in order for your layouts to work the way you want them to.
I'm not a member of TechNet so can't comment on how useful you would find that membership.
I never create a database in layout view. I define fields in Manage | Database.
Layout Mode is the only option (except for the Modify and + buttons when in table view) for changing the design of your layout.
Keep in mind that FileMaker sets you up with three things: Layout, Table Occurrence and Table with identical names each time you create a table in FileMaker. They may have the same names but they are distinctly different parts of your database design. ("Table Occurrences" are the "boxes" found in Manage | database | relationships. See: Tutorial: What are Table Occurrences? to learn more about them.)
Ah I see, I think it's the way I've created my Database. I added the fields using the + button in the Table View and names them in there also.
I've now found the Manage Database dialog! Thanks for that :)
Think I'm going to RTM before moving forward! Thanks again for your quick reply :)
