Tables will not show anything other than a table of records.
"I have created a layout where one field (job number) appears in the header. When I 'view as table' this field does not appear."
You can see the header part ( and ALL the fields there positioned ) by enabling:
Layouts >> Layout Setup... >> Views >> Properties... >> Include header part
Thanks for your response.
When I move the field back into the body of the form, it still won't show.
I don't seem to be able to add fields for other tables either. Newly added fields don't show either. The form in question has a lot of fields (111, actually). Is there some kind of practical limit?
also relative newbie here, but possibly the text colour is matching the background colour, so fileds won't show?
There is an upper limit in FileMaker to how many fields you can show in the body of a view as table layout. I don't remember the exact limit, but 111 sounds large enough to reach this limit.
