Title

Paste to Global Field from Multiple Records

Post

     General Overview Description

     I want to be able to search for keyword within a file. From the found  set of records, I want to be able to select some of them and then with the push of a Button, I would like the field contents of a specific field in each record be copied and pasted to a Global Field.

     Detailed Concept Thought

     From the found record set, I would like to "select" some of the found records that have what I want. I would "check" the record by having a special selecting field with a radio box or check box that would be selected within the record. 

     I would then create a script that would copy and paste the contents of a specific field in each of the records to the global field using Text Calculation Operators that would put each on their own line within the global field. 

     Can anyone give advice on how to create such a script?

      

     Any help here would be greatly  appreciated.
     I have FMPro Advanced 12.0 v4
     OS - Windows Vista on desktop, Windows 7 on laptop
