Attendance checkbox not able to hold highlight after first repeat?
Using FP #11 on Mac
I have found a partial answer to this question on the Forum "Checkboxes Only Filling in First Repeat in repeating Field" however when I attempt the solution outlined it has no impact on the problem. Even though I can not see 'Field Format' in the Format menu, I can adjust the number of repeats when defining the field but again this has no impact, I am not sure if I have in fact created a 'Repeating" field!
I have created a formatted a field layout with checkboxes (also tried radio buttons)via a Value List; to cover a period of 5 weeks full weeks (7 day weeks), I can "click out" the first week but when I move the the second week I loose all of the previous week.
Are you able to tell me where I could have gone wrong?
It doesn't sound like you have a repeating field. The number of repetitions specified for a field are selected in Field Options via Manage | Database | Fields.
But I do not recommend that you use a repeating field for this. Using a related table of records in one or more portals results in a much more flexible design for your data.
