Hello Filemaker community. This is my first post and I'm hoping I can find an answer to a problem that plagues me currently. I'll try to give as much information as I can.
I have a page with a portal on it that gets used to create packing slips for orders being shipped out. There is a field with a drop down menu where the "product" is selected from and it auto-fills a "descriptions" field with the corresponding info such as the name of the product and the serial number, which the last 4 numbers get manually entered into the field. It looks something like this:
Serial No.: 123456
Now, mostly due to my lack of any training or education with filemaker, I have listed the various shipping methods under "product" so the subsequent lines of the packing slip can be filled out. When a shipping method is selected from the "product" list, it auto-fills the description with "Tracking No.:", which I then paste the tracking number from whatever website I'm shipping through.
Now, to what I'm trying to accomplish here. I am attempting to find a way to format the numbers when pasted into the field after "Tracking No.:" into sets of numbers. Right now it looks like this: Tracking No.: 123456789000 (Times New Roman font, 12pt.). I'd like it to look like this: Tracking No: 1234 5678 9000 (Verdana font, 10pt.), without having to manually go into the field afterwards and enter the spaces.
Is this something I can accomplish? Is it something I can do in a portal, or was that a bad design choice from the beginning?
