Assigning a number to a text drop-down list
I am a doctor and new to Filemaker (just bought Filmaker Advanced 12 and am feeling a little overwhelmed!) I get the feeling I'm going to be on here a lot. I really want to use Filemaker in my day-to-day medical audit process.
I use a lot of scoring systems (APACHE II) where each option in a text field is assigned a number. For example, the following entires for age:
areall assigned a score of, respectively, 1, 2, and 4.
This a recurrent theme in my work.
What is the best way of doing this?
Really greatful for any help!
