I am using Filemaker 11 and trying to print fields in the header on a layout, and for some reason it does not work. Any Ideas
Can you post screen shot(s) especially of Layout mode?
What I am trying to do is make this an order in this layout and it is from another layout that is just a quote.
This is all flat file.
It is just the fields that do not print, the labels are fine.
Please post screen shot (Layout mode).
In this screenshot, I think I got it to work but I am not sure how. I so need to know how to repeat what I did.
You have a Title Header which will (or should) only print on the first page of the report. It appears to be "list view" report. With this being a "flat file", you must understand that any thing in the headers and footers must be pulling data from the "current record". So If you view this from record 15 instead of record 1, then the header fields may be totally different.
"flat file" also means that whatever you have in a layout should also appear in the same field in another layout (same record). So your "order" and "quote" really are the same data, if I understand correctly.
can you post a screen shot of the relationship graph to verify what you have?
Everything you said was correct, but I do not have a relationship graph as I am using this as a form, and not drawing anything from another file.
I just can't figure out how I got it to print in the title header.
You have a relationship graph even if you only have one table. Go to Manage-> Database (under the File menu). Click on the Relationships tab.
