Title

Days to go till...  field

Post

Hi,

 

Is there a way to create a field that automatically displays the number of days left until a particular date?

 

So for example, I have a field titled "launch date", which has an upcoming date entered into it, and I want another field to tell me how many days there are left from today until that launch date.  I would want it to update each day of course, like a count down.  

 

I can't seem to be able to find anywhere to put in a field with today's date that will update each day, in order to be able to have a calculation that will also update each day between the 'today date' field and the 'launch day' field.

 

Any ideas?  (This may be really obvious - sorry, I'm very new to filemaker.)

 

Cheers,

Hildy.
