Hi:

I've inherited a rather cumbersome database with one table, 1400 fields, and hundreds of layouts. I'm trying to eliminate unused fields. I'm familiar with the Functions: FieldNames and LayoutNames. Is there a way to get Filemaker to tell me every layout a particular field is used in?

Thanks

I don't think it would be too hard to script your own "pseudo-DDR". Start by having your script loop through the layouts and create a new record in a Layouts table, with the layout name. Then you can use the FieldNames function to get the fields of each layout.
