Hi, I'm working with Filemaker Pro 12 and have a set of instructions related to this question for an older version of filemaker. I've tried following the instructions including setting up global fields and then creating what they call a "I'm Done" script. Basically what I'm trying to create is a layout that allows one to enter new records only. I do not want to be able to view or edit any records in this layout. I also want the fields to be blank and ready for data entry when someone enters the layout. I have tried creating a button with a script like this:
Set Field ['Name','Global Name']
The previous instructions from filemaker also said to add Clear ['Global Name']. This seems to work well in clearing my data and leaving a table with a bunch of blank rows, and no new record in my main table. This is not what I want to do though.
How can I set up a layout so it opens with a new blank record (all ready for data entry), that then (when closing or clicking a button) adds this information as a new record to my main table? Can anyone help with this?
