Repeating Field and Multipule data entry

I am designing a contact relationship database. I need to use a field that can have multipule lines of data, (ie repeating field), but that can have new data added by clicking on a button to insert date, without it deleting what is already in there. Any Ideas!?!?

Cheers

Mavhack, it sounds like what you need is not a repeating field but a plain old text field. Here's how I have done it in the past.

1) Create a text field to hold the contact info text, call it ContactInfo

2) Create a second field for the new text to be appended, call it NewText

3) Have your user enter the new data into the NewText field and when finished have them click a button to complete the task.

4) Attach a script to this button that effectively does the following:

Set Field(ContactInfo, DateToText(Status(CurrentDate)) & ", " & TimeToText(Status(CurrentTime)) & ": "
