importing text from one field into another
I'm using FMP 8 on a MAC
I have a script that I want to use in order to create a various sort.
First, the script takes you to a layout where the user must fill in various fields.
one of the fields is a drop down based on a defined value list.
next, the script takes the user to another layout, where the commands tell it to enter the information from the previous layout's fields, into fields in find mode on the current layout.
I have scripts like this that work fine with dates, but i'm having trouble making this work with text pulled from drop down list.
How does your script work (or fail)?
Can you post the script?
What you describe is pretty straightforward.
Do you trap the values before entering Find Mode?
Are the input fields global?
Are the two layouts based on the same table?
