    Creating multiple records in one table from one layout

    kmacstuf

      I am a newbie with FileMaker and am trying to figure out if there is a way to have one layout end up creating multiple records in the same table - i.e. I often have a situation where multiple accounts have the exact same activity with the exception of perhaps quantity or amount.  Rather than enter 2 or 3 records duplicating most of the information, I would like to enter the common information once and specify the accounts to which the activity applies and whatever specifics apply to those accounts and then have FM create separate activity records for each account.  I have tried to find this scenario in tutorials and videos and help etc., but haven't had any luck.  Is this possible?  If so, how would I do it?

       

      Thanks.
