    Creating Modified Date whenever a specific field is updated

      Creating Modified Date whenever a specific field is updated

      Post

      First, thank you for reading this. I am very new to FMP (less than a week) and I am walking into a dbase that is already set up and seems to suit most of our needs. It is lacking one thing and I hope you can help me.

       

      Field - SpaceAllocation

       

      I need to find a way that when SpaceAllocation is modified that I can flag (timestamp?) the record and be able to pull it up with a report of modifydate > xx/xx/xxxx.  I don't want to be allerted when ANYthing changes, just the one field.

       

      Would I then just write a report/layout to sort out the records that have been changed after a certain date? How would one do that.

       

      I've seen messages about this, but written so long ago that they'd likely no longer apply (Circa 1995 on google groups). I am using FMP 10.

       

      Again, please forgive me for my lack of knowledge, I am trying to pick up on this as quickly as possible but can really use some help/
