Title

Copying layout to an unrelated table in the same database

Post

Hello all, 

 

First time posting here so thanks in advance for any answers you might have. Using FM 8.5 Advanced, I have a database for a summer program with information on each camper. The last two years, I have a created a new table in the same database file by exporting the information from the original table into a new table (I need to access this information during the year). I then duplicated a layout from table 1 and had it look for information from table 2. I thought the fields would simply convert to the one in table 2 as it is the same information. Yet, I still have to click on every field on my layout in table 2 and change where the field looks for information under the field/control setup. Is there a way for the new layout to point to the new table for information?

 

Thanks!
