Automatic create new record
i am working with filemaker pro 11 and wanted to ask your opinion to how to resolve a problem i'm stuck with.
"sorry for the bad english but it isn'tmy native language"
So, i have a first table A
It contains 7 fields:
Field 1: Productnr
Field 2: Productfamily
Field 3: Quantity
Field 4: Price/unit
Field 5: deleverynote nr
Field 6: Total Price = calc of field 3 x 4
Field 7: Invoicenr
and a second table B with two fields
Field 1: Productfamily
Field 2: Extra cost
Relation between two tables is field 2 (table a) & field 1 (table b) productfamily
What i want to get as a result is:
when the field productfamily in table a matches the field productfamily in table B
it has to make a new record in table a with the same values of the original record execpt for field 4 (price/unit), there it has to fill in the value of field 2 from table B
Also when the quantity in field 3 table a is for example 2 it has to do the same as above but creating 2 new records where the qta for each record is set to 1
also i think that the field 2 productfamily in the new records has to be blank if not it will keep creating records ?
Which approach should work the best ?
I suggest you look over this demo file for how to set this up. I think you need at least one more table, if not several more to get this fully functional.
