Adding to quantities
I know this will probably be very simple, but right now I just cannot figure out how to do this. I have a bunch of conditional value lists (Make, Model, Part #) followed by a Quantity field. Now, one day I may order 3 of Part #X and then a few days alter add 6 more of the same.
How does FM "add" onto this quantity, or does it create a new record and then I have to add them on a report? I'd like to send out a parts request that has 1 concrete quantity per part number instead of different records that have loose quantities and have th eshop add them up (instant bad mood!).
You should add new records for each part (so you can track who ordered the part or other important information about the two individual requests).
You would then create a Report layout, with leading part based upon Part# and summarize the quantity.
