      Cut&paste text to new row



           I'm completely new on Filemaker, trying to get a grip on how stuff works. I'm working on a simple member system and found myself stuck. I need a system where I can list the missions of the members. When a mission has ended, I want to move the text to a "past missions" field, listing all past missions after each other with a button.

           So what I'm trying to do is cut the text from the mission field and moving it to a new row on the past mission field. Any tips on how to do this?

               You can drag and drop text from one field to another if you enable that option in preferences.

               But this sounds like a case where you have one record when you should have many and in at least two related tables:


               A portal to Missions can then list all missions for a given missionary, both past and present. A status field can be changed to designate which mission is the current mission and starting a new mission then does not require any such cut and paste, you just start a new Mission record in the portal.
