  1. I've been playing around with the Invoice starter solution in FM 11 advanced. Wondering the correct approach to add inventory and keep a log. Maybe a layout similar to "Record Detail-Invoices" where once clicked "Update Inventory" adds the amount to "Products::Amount In Stock". Thanks.

  11. I'll admit I'm not the best person when trying to explain something. But here it goes, I have a table filled with serial numbers and no one assigned to them. I want to have two fields, one where I input the name of the person being assigned the serial numbers and the other where I will input all serial numbers being assigned. I want to be able to put more than one serial number at a time. Then I want a button that will update any serial numbers in the field with the name of the person that being assigned to.
  12. That's exactly what i want to do. Can you give examples?
