Most of the FileMaker start solutions use portals IIRC.
If you go into layout mode, you can change the size of your portal as well as the fields in it. Make your descriptions field longer.
You may have to adjust the rest of the objects on the layout to accomodate this.
Another option would be to use a Tooltip to display the rest of the description. Just use the "Self" function as the tooltip.
Thanks for the help!!
I am going to have to find a book and read! The Purchase Order Layout has a different portal, so I can not select the same fields.
Ug, you would think that FM would have checked their templates.
Thanks again for your help.
I have exactly the same problem and have been trying to find the solution for hours! At the moment, i'm using a demo version of Filemaker Pro 11 and athough I can enter mulitple items on the input page, when I click "view purchase order', it only shows the first item.
Did you find out how to change this?
