  1. Yes!!! That was it! I had that option turned on and didn't even know it existed! So many options and features, so little time to know them all! That one had me stumped! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Steve. 🙃
  2. I borrowed a Theme from a friend for learning purposes and when entering data in Browse mode the borders on EVERY field, check box, etc... the lines become dotted. But on my friend's solution, his theme the dots don't happen at all. His borders don't appear to become active when entering data. They stay solid and very much more visually pleasing. I have done a side by side comparison of every option in the Layout Inspector and cannot find a single difference between his file and mine. I've also tried copying and pasting Styles and States using the Inspector's Eye droppers but no change. So I've included two screen captures examples. The Zoomed in dotted screen shot on the right is mine! What am I missing? Thanks!!!! 🙂
  3. Thanks to both of you for your quick responses! I have to admit that sometimes one can't see the forest from the trees! Running the "Replace Field Contents" AFTER the import has finished is perfect. Some times one needs a good slap up side the head to see something so simple and obvious! Thanks again! 😀
  4. I'm using the "Calculated value" option in the Auto-Enter Options dialog box to run calculations on several fields during an Import of data. It cleans up some miss spelled data. But I need to turn OFF the "Calculated value" options after the import is done using a Script step if there is one? Or some other method? And back on before the import as well. FYI... If I leave it turned on the Formula I have specified for the Calc will make the field data disappear if it doesn't match and of the possible calculation results. I did see the wonderful Auto-Enter options in the newly updated Import Dialog box in FileMaker 18, but that wants the formula's left active or √ as they say. Thank in advance! 😀
