Hi hope somebody can help, a rather unskilled filemaker guy.
I’m a user of Filemaker and have been for more than 10 years.
A mainly use FM for looking up business related information and for making rapports.
I do not have any programming experience, but I’m rather curious.
Hope somebody here can help me out with a problem I have been struggling with.
I’m managing a sales organization, and want to publish our sales, to my local Account managers in a filemaker go Ipad database. Non of our AM have any experience with FM, so a fairly simple layout, mainly based on buttons will be necessary.
What I want is, hit a button that takes you to a search layout.
On that layout I want two date fields with calendar popup, so the salesman can press two dates that will bee turned in to the search criteria eg. 01-01-2012…31-12-2012 that can be used in find mode to search for sales in a specific period.
I have been thinking ‘’global fields’’ but I can figure out how to make a script that can copy the two date from the two data fields and turn it into a search criteria. Please help.
