I have a layout as "View as List" with a header...in the header I have two Global fields in which the user can input info to do a search...

the problem is that the buttons work in the header but data cannot be entered in fields that are located in the header...

is there a way to activate these fields using a script or an FM trick??

THANKS

The header is a header and is not part of any record, so you cannot do any data entry in it.

I do think that Filemaker should allow editing of global fields in the header, but since they are techincally part of a record (in this case every record) they are still bound by the record editing limitations.

As Kurt correctly said, the header is a semi-dumb section of the layout then is not responding to many actions.

Why you don't consider the opportunity to build a search-dedicated form and switching to list view after the search is performed ?

You have an extra job, but the solution is more polished and elegant.

Regards.
