    Data Entry



      Data Entry




           Rather embarrassingly I have a very low level couple of questions that I need some help with. 

      1.           If i have manually entered everyone's dates of birth into the system without using a drop down calendar can I then change my database so that I have a drop down calendar without losing everyone's date of birth entries?
      3.           I have used one of the pre written data bases for invoicing and I was wondering how I can change the $ - £ sign.
      5.           Does anyone know of any west London based people who could come and help me with the initial set up on my Filemaker Pro 12?

           Thanks in advance for your help.

               1) this is a change to the format of a field on a layout. It will not change the data stored in that field.

               2) In Layout mode. Select the field by clicking and then go to the bottom of the Inspector's data tab where you'll find a box that specifies the currency symbol and can change it.

               3) Sorry, I live on the "other side of the pond" from you.
