Utoh...repeating field vs ?


Hi Gang,

FM version 6.0v2 (windows)

I've been doing a lot of reading and have found that I probably need to stay away from repeating fields, but I am not sure how to solve my issue. So I'm posting for your expert advice.

In our Production Log table, there are several repeating fields (Station #; Item Code; Shot Size; Cycles; & Bad Sheets). Each is set to 18 repititions and all displayed vertically. We create a new record each day for each machine running. There is other data we keep in each record (production hours, who is at what station, etc.) The data in each repeating field varies.

I have been trying to import the records into a clone & separating them out, but it doesn't seem to be the solution I need as I will be reporting by Item Code and need all those values in one field. Correct?
