Creating a button that, when pressed, would duplicate fields I have created and enter new data.

Post

Hello FMPro gurus...

 

Please help.

 

I'm very new to FileMaker Pro, I'm using FMPro 11. Mac OSX.

What I'm trying to ask or achieve is this, I've created a database that has fields.

Is there a way to create a button that will duplicate fields that I've already created and input new data on them.

I don't want to duplicate the whole form or all fields, just 3 or 5 fields that would make me enter new data.

 

For Example, I have an institution called BASKET and I have 3 computers there.

I have a field for INSTITUTION then fields for COMPUTER MAKE, COMPUTER SERIAL NO. and COMPUTER WARRANTY

Of course I will create these just once but is there a way that I can create a button that would enable me to duplicate the last 3 fields so that I can just input more and more computers as they grow?

 

I've Tried bento and bento can display TABLES inside the Form view, I don't think FMPro can. Correct me if I'm mistaken.

 

Thanks!
