Trying something entirely new
this is the first that I have ever attempted anything with filemaker and it is proving to be a challenge. If there is anyone that would like to let me pick their brain, I would be much obliged. I am attempting to set up a record keeping deal where we can keep track of gear signed in and out on a given date, by a certain group. Each item is numbered like tent1 tent2 with checkboxes. All this information in entered on the initial screen. Then this is where I get stuck. I would like to be able to track on a separate screen in some kind of list deal with search capabilites so I can pull up a date and see what gear is out and to whom. Also, at the end of the year be able to print out a report that lists each item and how many times it was used and things like that. I don't understand the fields and values very well. Particularly the check box. How do I check tent1, tent2, and tent3 and get that to translate to 3 tents on another screen.
Has anyone done something similar to this that could lend me their smarts. :) thank you!!
