Hello everyone,


I am new to FileMaker and I would love getting some help with a Button related issue. I am currently struggling with making scripts that create, set or change the Values in a given Field.


I have a bunch of buttons on a layout, and I want them to function as checkboxes that will do an awesome script: I want a box that is checked to enter data into a specific Field in that layout.


Here is my example:

So, as you can see, I want the three checkboxes on the right to be useful by defining the value of the "Multiple Birth" Field for a given person / Record.


If I click on the "Yes" checkbox, I want the "Multiple Birth" Field to have a vale of "Yes" and if I click the "No" checkbox I want the value in that "Multiple Births" Field to be "No" and so on. It doesn't have to be text; it could be 1s and 0s if that is necessary - I just want to connect the buttons to the field I want to control.


This would really, really help me out in my work and I really appreciate any and all help.


Thanks in advance!
