      Data Field Entry

      Post

      I have not used FM in years, I now have FMPro 11v2 and started to design a database. I have been through Linda.com training and have the book "Missing Manual". My problem has got to be something obvious that I am not seeing.

      I write my database with three tables, I add fields and set relationships. Then I make a tab from another table and add fields to the tab. When I exit layout mode FM will not let me enter any data into the fields in the newly created tab. I have tried for days trying to figaure this out. I get a popup message that says "Before typing, press Tab or click in a field, or choose the New Record menu command" none of which works except in the non tab data fields.

      What am I doing wrong????
