How Do I Get Data To Repeat in a Field Until I Decide to Change It?
I'm using FM 11 Advanced, and am designing a fairly simple flat-file database. But I'm not sure how to do one thing, so I'm requesting some assistance, please.
I have a couple of fields that I would like to retain the same data each time I create a new record, until or unless I manually change the data.
For example, let's say I have a numeric field called Storage Box Number. I'd like to type the number 1 in it, and I want the number 1 to appear in that field for each new record, until I decide to change it and type in 2 instead. And then, 2 should keep appearing in that box until I change it to 3…and so on.
(I hope I explained that clearly.)
I assume this is possible, but am not sure how to do it. Would anyone care to tell me the procedure? Thank you very much! Jd
