AutoFill and Lookup

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

I am having no end of trouble getting a lookup/autofill to work as I want it to.

I have got it to work in various parts of my program, but not this one.

I have included an attachment in excel showing 3 columns.

The first 2 columns work fine, its the 3rd column that will not work. Further down the spreadsheet is a picture of the screen layout.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Milton

I tried to attach but couldn't find any way to?;)???

Get rid of the repeating field in Invoice. Use a portal to a related table Invoice Line Items. This table will be a join between Invoice & Product.

Ralph,

Thanks for that, The repeating field works fine on the invoice, its the one for the accounts (column 3 in the spreadsheet) that will not autofill.

Regards

Milton.

Upload a working FileMaker example file please.

The repeating fields will cause you no end of reporting problems.

Will you ever want to know totals for any item type or tax code for a date period or customer? Oops, you're using repeating fields, you can't get that information.

Get rid of all the repeating fields. Seriously.
