      How can I move the last name closer to the smaller first name in the form view in FileMaker Pro 11?  There is a blank space between the smaller first name and the last name.

          Create a calulcation field to display the full name.  Or even several, to give you options for displaying the name differently in different circumstances.  For example:

          FirstName & " " & LastName                                Shows 'John Scott'

          or

          LastName & ", " & FirstName                               Shows 'Scott, John'

          or

          Left (FirstName ; 1 ) & " " & LastName                 Shows 'J Scott'

          or

          LastName & ", " & Left (FirstName ; 1 )                Shows 'Scott, J'
