    Repeating Files



      Repeating Files


      I am creating a simple data base for a non-profit I support. I have what is probably a pretty simple problem but I haven't been able to work through it. I have created a repeating file with a max of 300 entries within a specific. I have formatted the file to display on 10 entries. Here is my problem. I can't find a way to display the entries beyond the first 10 entries. I had hoped there would be a scroll bar but understand that repeating files don't permit scroll bars. Advice will be very helpful.

          Hi Arthur,

          I suspect that you are referring to a repeating field that is defined with 300 repetitions and that you have only added 10 repetitions to the layout. 

          If this is the case, I suggest that you use a separate Table for these 300 items instead of a repeating field.  Then you can relate this new table to your primary table and use a Portal with scroll bar.
