It's possible, but do you have the skills to do it?
Here's a demo file you may find useful if you understand FileMaker scripting. With it, you can click a word and a script will use the clicked word to search another table for a definition for that word.
Hi PhilModJunk. That gives me an idea of what's possible. I imagine this solution can be massaged a bit with some additional scripting, no? Is this a script you created?
I'm not currently versed in scripting for Filemaker, but I've done some programming here and there in the past. Actually, that's one of the reasons I asked the question I did. I don't want to put the time and effort into learning how to script if my end goals are not achievable.
This was a demo file that I created some time ago in response to another request here in the forum. It only demonstrates a possible way to look up definitions for single words. You'd likely need to do additional work to adapt it to the needs of your system.
