      Is it possible to code Excel-like rows in FMPro?

      Post

      Hi All

      Newbie to Filemaker and need help in trying to re-create an MS Excel quotation form in FMPro. I am looking to achieve something similar to the screen shot below, but with about 30+ 'Sections'. The 'Section' headers will be the same from quote to quote and only changed in the layout. 'Descriptions' are editable text 'rows' and need to be multiple lines from 1 to many. The number fields need to calculate. The 'Tender Price' is the calculation of each Sub Total. So the difficulty is getting the added rows to 'grow' as in Excel. Have thought about portals - but I don't want a scroll bar. Would multiple Sub-summary parts do it? Any suggestions would be welcome.

      Cheers
