Hi. I'm very sorry I am new to filemaker and I am very interested learning. I am making my own database and I want to add multiple fields in the body message. For example
It’s hard to type a reponse and have it appear correctly, so here’s a screenshot example.
The Message panel (indeed, all the panels) is just a calculation window and you message is really just another calculation expression. Double click on the box and it will open up. You are on the right track so far, so just keep going, building up your expression with further text, fields, etc.
So basically I want add to body subject multiple fields from the layout so whenever I click mail the the customer information will show up like below:
Please send receipt to the location below:
That backslash at the end of the first line needs to go. That's an 'escaping' character.
All strings and fields need to be concatenated. You're missing ampersands in several spots. One at the end of the second line of code, after the two [returns] on the Establishment line. Another immediately after the word 'Address' on the third line. Use something like this:
Thank you very much! I got it!
I will take note of that and make sure I won't forget. We hired a FMP developer at work and when I saw him doing some stuffs to our database I felt very interested and told myself I want to do that. I think I will have to sign up for classes and read more about FMP this is really interesting. I'm creating my own database and playing with it and learning as I go.
Thank you! Thank you!
Glad to hear it! I started with FileMaker at v4 (1999). I remember feeling kinda lost for a while. It’s ok, FileMaker isn’t really like anything else, so it can take a little time to get up to speed, but once you do, it’s a super fast development tool.
Lynda.com is a fantastic resource for learning FileMaker (foundation stuff), as are the fellow geeks in this community. Happy coding.
I'm sorry to ask you again but I am trying to add () in the subject line.
I want it to look like this Canelo vs GGG Activation (J&J Sports Productions Inc)
Here's what I did so far but it is not working
”Canelo vs GGG Activation (“ & Cable Activation::Establishment Name & “)”
Or, the more verbose version:
”Canelo vs GGG Activation” & “ (“ & Cable Activation::Establishment Name & “)”
I've been searching the web to find out and no luck.
I got it now working.
