Gabe Posted January 22, 2005 Share Posted January 22, 2005 Hey Im completely new to filemaker, so I am learning as I go. I figured out how they put the contact name in big grey letters on the contacts example. <<tablename::fieldname>> Easy enough. Now, I want to be able to display text based on a relationship. For example, I am designing a system to keep track of lawsuit records. I have a suits table, a parties involved table, and a join table which links what parties are involved in what suits. On the suit layout, I want to display text saying the name of plaintiff vs defendant. That information is in a related table, and I don't know how to access that using the table::field notation. I tried doing <<partiesinvolved::name>> but I want to be able to select which record to show based on whether they are plaintiff or defendant, and also whether they are the first plaintiff or defendant in the case, as there can be multiples of each. Is there an online guide to using that notation, or to applying dynamic text to a layout? Also, is there a way to use scripts to change or add text to the layout? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
