      Displying merge field

      Post

      Hi guys,

      I hv to display a merge field in a layout which contains no of fields.

      When i enter find mode for searching under some criteria the merge field value must be there.

      pls tell how to perform this.

          If you have FileMaker 11, you can use a global variable. Global variables can be enclosed in merge brackets << >> just like a merge field. Use a script with a set variable step to put the value into the field or use a conditional format expression that uses a Let function to assign a value to the variable.

          If you don't have FileMaker 11, you can still do this, but use a field with global storage and it will still display the value while in find mode.
