Display "other" value from Checkbox set

Recommended Posts

Courtney    0

In FileMaker 14, I have a checkbox set that allows the user to enter other values aside from the assigned value list.

I'm trying to figure out how I could display the "other" text that is entered by the user, without also displaying other selected items, since those are visible in the checkbox set.

Can I somehow filter each value list item out and only display what is left in a text field?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, but obviously not in the same field. You will need to add a calculation field and use a custom function (such as http://www.briandunning.com/cf/193, for example) to remove the items listed in the value list from those listed in your field. It might be simpler to let users enter the "other" value into another text field.
