Ridiculous I know - layouts not showing all fields in FMP 7.0v1/ reccomendations for upgrading?
Running FMP 7.0v1 on OS 10.5/10.6. Absurd I know, I know but inherited on the job. So have a series of relatively simple databases to track tapes and var prod elements (I work for a small tv production company.) All data in fields/records is manually entered, ie not linked/fed by any external file, fields aren't related to one another. DBs never get above 2K individual records total. DBs were created successively. So in essence each is a copy of the last, just with new field entries, and occassionally couple of new fields. And that's where the problems come in. Recently run into issue that when I create a new field in the DB, that field only seems to be visible in the particular layout it was created in. And by layout I mean those DB variations accessible by the layout pulldown on far left navigation (see attached.) But when I access the fields in the Define/Database function (how I created the new fields in the first place") I see the missing field listed in the "Fields" tab (also listed as "Indexed.") How do I get this field to appear in this particular layout? Is there something really basic that I'm missing? Again, the basic structure/configurations of these DBs is something I inherited - I fact really only use 2 layouts per DB. Any help would be much appreciated. Additionally, any reccomendations on upgrading to more contemporary DB app - where I can easily preserve all the existing DB records - would be appreciated. Thanks, Nick
