      Maxed out # of fields for display?

      Post

           I am finding that not all of my fields can be displayed in a layout - only the first 50 or so. I know there are a lot. Does anybody have a workaround for this? Or a limitation of FMP12?

               Use a tab control or seperate layouts.

                 Would I be correct that you are looking at your layout in table view?

                 If so, there's a specific limit to how wide your table can be. You can squeeze in a few more fields by making the columns narrower, but in all practicality, you'll need to think in terms of several layouts each with a sub set of the total number of fields and nav buttons in the header for changing layouts to see the rest of the data.

                 But 50+ fields on one layout also raises the possibility that you may need to reconsider the design of your underlying data model.
