I want to create a field that auto-populates the name of the current month (MonthName). I would also like to auto-populate a field with the current year. I copied fields from a starter solution I found them in… but can't seem to get the field to auto-populate in my layout.
I found a thread that addresses this (http://forums.filema...osts/ed41960dd2) exactly, but it suggests doing what I've already done.
For the month field, I created a field named "Current Month Name." It's a global text field that is supposed to auto-populate from this calculation: MonthName ( Get ( CurrentDate ) ). I placed this field in my layout, switched to browse mode… and it's just an empty field.
Similar for the "Current Year" field…except the calculation is: Year (Get ( CurrentDate ) ).
I am a NOOB... So any explanation as to why I can't get this to function would be greatly appreciated. Are
