Double clich the field 'Notes'
Unceck the box: Use global storage
Remember that from now that field contains nothing and all you'll write inside it will be pertinent to the single record.
thx ray, unfortunately "notes" doesn't appear in the fields listing. only place i find "Notes" is under the tables tab (which makes sense because it generates a table when you click make a new note).
if i open 'Notes' i get a list of fields for that table but i checked them all and none of the fields comprising Notes has global storage.
any other idea?
Go in Layout Mode and double click that field, so you'll know the exact name and table of that field.
After go and do what I said before.
i figured it out. apparently it was set up right but somehow for a reason i don't know, it wasn't working right. now everything's peachy! mucho gracias
