Is it posible to create a database in multiple languages?

What I want is that the field label names changes after there is made a language selection.

Example:

Fieldname=field01

After selecting the language english the FIEL LABEL field01 should be replaced with NAME and when the language Dutch has been selected the field label should be NAAM

English

NAME: field01

Dutch

NAAM: field01

Is there anyone who can tell me where to start?

Greetings,

Jukkie

A mergefield is a way to display a field on a layout ...the way it's made is by writing a fields name inside << and >> as plain text. This means that where you label is in dutch do you rewrite it as:

<<ContactName>> if the field in the fields def contain a field called "Contactname" ...this means you have to add calcfields for each label you need to produce localized texts to.

To substrantiate this suggestion read about "merge" in help....

Hi jukkie,

Maybe something like what Matt Petrowsky shows in his video and Free File in the [color:"blue"]15 Minutes Tabs presentation.Click Here It is at the bottom of the page (2nd to the last).

To see it,
