  1. Insert data into a field?

    Hi LaRetta, > if you want a checkbox to have a check if certain conditions are met and you don't want Users to be able to change this checkbox, then a calculation is the way to go. It's only me using the DB. And it's simply to automate a function (checking the other boxes when a certain box is checked) that I now have to do by hand (and sometimes forget). > Redraw your checkbox field so only the box shows. You don't need the 'Y' to show - checked always means yes! Yeah, that's the part I'm good at <s>. > If you could explain exactly how this checkbox will be used, we might be able to give other ideas This now applies to 2 databases I'm using for my business, and in each case it's the same: When one box is checked, I want that to automatically trigger checking another box(es) (or in one case, changing a radio button field). > but try it ... I think you'll find a calculation may be what you're looking for. I will try it, thank you, following your instructions above. And if you have any other ideas of how this might be accomplished...I'd love to hear them. Karen
  2. Insert data into a field?

    Hi, All I want to do is have other check box(es) automatically checked ("y") when I check another, specified box. Sounds so easy. Is impossible! All I can find in the FMP help script section is how to insert a calculation. Not relevant as far as I can see. Although I'm a pro at creating layouts, obviously I'm a total dummy when it comes to automation and scripts. Help!!! Karen
