      How to get a field to fill in automatically with contents of another when this is filled in.

      Post

           Hi,

           I am new to FileMaker Pro and can't figure out how to do a very simple action hence asking for help!

           I have a "Date deposit paid" field and a "Date Balance paid" feild, sometimes people just pay the balance, so instead of having to fill both fields in with the same date, I would like to be able to just put the date in the Balance field and this auto fill the Deposit box.

           I have tried all sorts of formulas and conditional formatting but I don't understand it enough to make it work.

           Any help will be very much appreciated.

           Thanks, Sally
