    Moving a child field to a parent table

    kiverson

      Hi,

       

      I'm new to FM develping and have what I hope is an easy question.

       

      The past developer created a field in a table that is actually a child table, but I didn't realize it until I had already propogated the field with information. Now I need to move the field to the parent table.

       

      a) is this possible (and how)

       

      and

       

      b) will I lose the entered data? (My initial idea was just to scrap the field on the child table and created a new one on the parent, but I'd like to avoid having to re-enter all of the information)

       

      Thank you so much.

       

      ps. I'm running FMP12.0v4
