A shortcoming to me or maybe a mystery to me
I have not been able to find a way to place a variable as an object into a layout so that I can display the current variale value. I do not want to store/keep the info. I have made many attempts to search both the internet and documentation. I am using FM Pro Advanced 10. Will someone confirm my conclusion or post a way to do this. If there is no easy way to do this, I consider it a major shortfall. I can do this in other DBMS. Thank you, Gordon
FileMaker does not provide a means to directly display layout level calculations. Therefore, you can either set a global field to the global variable value, or you can use the web viewer as a means to display it.
