Problem when adding new record manually
FMP - 10.0v3 - Mac OS - Novice
As soon as I select Command / N, to add a new record, I get the following message:
"There are no records that match the criteria."
Then I select "OK" from the message and the screen looks like it is ready to accept data, but I have click on the first field I want to enter. In my other databases, when I add a new record it always automatically goes to the first field for input.
Thanks for any help in advance.
It sounds as if you are in Find mode, not Browse Mode because the message that you receive is the one given when a user has entered search criteria that do not match any existing records.
So, check the mode (View Menu). The Cmd-N combination performs a New Request in Find Mode, and a New Record in Browse Mode.
