Put this layout text in the header: @@
For FileMaker 12 users who might read this post, use the Insert menu while in layout mode to insert "Record Number Symbol".
Been away from my computer a couple of days.
Tried your great tip and it works. Not sure why
it works but I thank you.
Not sure why
Enter layout mode. Pull down the insert menu and note the options listed at the end of this menu. If you select "Record Number Symbol", this will insert the record number symbol onto your layout and in "Pre 12" versions of fileMaker, this is the @@ text.
