    Does FM support fields within fields?



      Does FM support fields within fields?


           Is it possible to put references to fields within other fields? For example, let's say I have one database containing scientific concepts and another database containing articles about science. Can I put references to the data in scientific concepts within the article text itself? I'm envisioning the references appearing as links within the text that can be clicked. Is that possible?

               It's possible within certain limitations and the method I worked out some time ago doesn't work in FM GO, only in FM Pro, but the OnObjectEnter script trigger can perform a script that scans from the point clicked, left and right to parse out a sub string of all text of a particular color and/or style (used to mark that text as a clickable link) and then that text can be used to determine what record to link to within the database or a URL to open if you want to link to a web site outside of FileMaker.
