Displaying Global Variable - $$FullName

Question asked by brad9 on Apr 2, 2018

Hello All:


I am new to FileMaker and I am developing a solution to use in a Community Center I serve in as a Missionary.  I would like to just display a contacts name (from the Contacts Table) on various layouts that are not in the Contacts Table.  I have created a Global Variable for the "FullName" using the below calculation:


Let ( $$FullName = Contacts_IglesiaCentroCommunitario::First_Name  &  " "  &  Contacts_IglesiaCentroCommunitario::Last ; False)


This is located in the "Hide Object When" portion of the Inspector.


The actual field is:


First_Name  &  " "  &  Last


It is stored as a Global number calculation.


The script that i am using is:

Refresh Window

Set Variable


The relationship between the 2 Tables is established using the Individual_ID Primary Key to Individual_ID Foreign Key and I have also set it where records can be created through this relationship.


My problem is that the Full Name, via a text box, that has the Global Variable is not displaying. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
