      Creating a subfield - is it possible in FM?

      Post

      Hello --

       

      I am just learning how to use FM Pro 12. I am trying to create a subfield within a field. So for example, If I have a field entitled Hands, I would need a subfield for Right and Left. The Right and Left would both need to have the some drop down menu options (I believe I can create this with the radio button)? Is creating this type of subfield possible in Filemaker pro 12?

       

      Thank you for your help - its greatly appreciated.

          You can assign the same value list to any fields in your record as needed.

          You can simply define two more fields in your table for Right and Left.

          In other circumstances, you might define a related table of records for such use, but it seems unlikely that you would need that here as the number of hands per person are pretty much the same world wide...Wink
