<< >> function




I am a relatively inexperienced Filemaker Pro user who has taken over maintenance of a database for work.

In one of our invoicing layouts, there is a text object that contains "Unit # - <<Unit #>>"

This shows the unit # on the invoicing layout. 

For some reason I can not understand, this text object does not show up on certain invoices.

I understand that I could replace the text object with an inserted field.

However, for my own knowledge, I would like to know exactly what the <<  >> modifier does and why it doesn't work all the time.

Also, I can not find information for these modifiers (<< >>) in my Filemaker Pro Bible!  Does anyone know where there is a list of these?
