Using Filemaker 12 Pro
This seems like a simple task and I was close to a solution at one point, but I seem to have lost my way. I simply want the user to click a "Checkout" button and for the current date and time to be applied to a field that will permanently hold the value (field will no longer be editable). The closest I got was adding a timestamp, but it continued to use the current timestamp every time the button was clicked. I've edited the script so many times that it has become useless. At this time I am using:
Specify Target Field (Chose my field and clicked OK)
Table::Check Out; Timestamp (date ; time)
When I click OK, I get error "An Operator (e.g. +,-,*,...) is expected here." Clearly I have no clue what I'm doing.
Any ideas are appreciated. The closest solution I've found is here: https://www.reddit.com/r/filemaker/comments/2dyaaj/button_timestamp_help/
But it hasn't been much help.
