Hiding Sections Of A Form Until Needed.


Brand new beginner on Filemaker (or ANY database program for that matter).


I have created a proposal-estimate form for my company. This form has three sections - all identically the same. Each section has a place for Part Number, Description, Qty, Cost, Total, Comments, and a couple of container fields for pictures.


I know how to hide fields and/or drop down lists on each section until I need them. No problem there.


But if I use just the top section of the form, I would like to be able to hide the other two sections if they are not needed for the estimate to cut down on the confusion.


Is there an easy way to do this? Again - I'm at the very beginning stages of using Filemaker, so talk to me like you are talking to a rock and give simple step-by-step directions if you can.
