We have been using FileMaker Pro for our research study for a long time. For every layout for every study, we make a code book with the variable names embedded in the layout in word file as our study code book. It takes a long time to add all the field names as a text box back into the Word document file for each layout.  How to make the work simple and quick has become one of our issues?

 

With FileMaker Pro advanced 12, I was able to print out a table with all the fields as defined in the table as a data dictionary. My question is that with the new added label feature for a field, can I print out a table with all the fields and its label as a data dictionary?
