Hi Everyone

New to Filemaker and have already found a lot of help by using the Community forum but I am hitting a bit of an obstacle with the following.

I have created a table as attached - Issue Details into which I need to create New Records as items are lent out to users.

I currently have another List View that shows Availability by Code Number.

I need to be able to issue Code as single items but also as batches.


Issue IDCodeIssue DateReturn DateProduction NoSerial NoUser

Ideally I would like to be able to mark a group of Code numbers in my Availability List then go to entry screen

Issue ID - autoentry

Issue Date- default to entry date

Return Date -  left blank

Production No - manual entry 

Serial Number- enter first then sequential +1

User - manual entry

After initial entry I would like the same data on each record for the number of codes selected to be populated - then return to Availability by Code Number List.

I have tried to follow script examples for this, but nothing I have seen so far does quite what I need

Thank you all!
