Please do not say "replace field contents"!


Say I have a field with numerous checkboxes as options. I want to CHECK or UNCHECK a certain checkbox for all the fields in my found set. I do NOT want to replace.


This is the script I have now for check. But it replaces rather than ADDS a checkmark.

This is the script that i have now for uncheck. I am not sure what it does and my brain is scrambled.

FYI: I am using FileMaker Pro 14 and have very little understanding of scripts so you have to really explain things to me. I wrote both these scripts so long ago, I can't even follow them. I do have experience with functions, but mostly in Excel.


I believe philmodjunk tried to help me years ago, but for some reason, the forum has lost the links to all the posts I was following or participated in.
