      Very new to FileMaker - Need help in creating a dynamic data entry screen

      Post

      Thank you very much folks in advance!

      I am very new to FileMaker and have not done any programming / configuration beforehand. I am developing a custome database for my small organization and am stuck at a problem which I am mentioning below:

      I am required to make a data entry screen where a user should be able to choose number of rows they want to appear on the screen for data entry purposes. We want to provide quotation for providing services to our clients. The quotation includes several components (Telephone charges,  Consultant fees, Equipment charges and so on). The user should be asked "How many components you want to add in your quote?". The user can then specify, let us say "7". The screen then automatically creates 7 places for entering data and an 8th field giving sum total of all the data in the 7 places.

      Please bear if my problem statement is not technical enough. I will be more than happy to clarify myself further!
