Filling in a repetition field with a script

Question asked by Jon1 on Feb 1, 2018

I am new to FileMaker (only version ever used was 7 – when it was new) and have a question.


I have a time field named “start time” with 15 repetitions. I created a button and attached a single step button action that fills the first start time field repetition with the current time. When I click the button a second time, the initial time is overwritten with the current time.


I would like the button action to fill in the next empty repetition field meaning if the first field already had a value, then the second time the button is clicked, the time would be added to the second repetition and then the third, fourth etc etc.


Does anyone have some helpful tips on how I can accomplish this?
