mminer Posted February 14, 2005 Share Posted February 14, 2005 Happy Valentine's! My use of FMP likes repeating fields (or some version of them) because, in an invoice, I can put one color of an item on a line and show it in all its available sizes. The layout is very readable and data entry is quick as you only need to input the color when and order is placed. The size fields appear automatically. However, I've heard and read that repeating fields are to be avoided. Can anyone tell me how to avoid repeating fields and still: a) enter data quickly, without needing to define each color and size for an order item? show all available sizes of a particular color on one line? Thanks! p.s.: This post is sort of a take off of my previous post: "Inventory transaction table with colors & sizes" if you'd like more background.
