    How to create a button that will create a new record but keep information from the current record

    makj1

      Hello all, I'm very new to Filemaker and databases in general but I've got a fairly simple FM db that has a pretty easy to follow relationship. The main table has user names and information fields. This is linked to several other tables using our unique ID number and these other tables are split up by status and outcome, trial dates, and data fields, etc...

       

      I have a layout for one of these tables that uses a portal to call on various fields from these tables for a sort of summary. I'd like to create a button so a user can create a new record but keep the information from a certain number of these fields. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
