I have just started using Adobe FileMaker Pro 6 for the convenience of keeping records of my patients. Here are my questions:
1) Is there anyway i can create subgroups or subfields?
Example: Disease I
a. Symptoms I
b. Symptoms II etc
I can easily create 'Disease I' as a field, but i can't figure out how to create field within a field for 'Symptoms I' and 'Symptoms II.' Is it even possible in FileMaker Pro 6?
2) I have created fields like 'Disease I' in 'Pop-Down Menu' format. What i want is to say, i select 'Symptoms I,' from that list, then have another field right beneath it which would show other options. If i didn't myself clear, here's another example: I have a field, which requires a person to either select 'Yes' or 'No.' As soon as you press 'Yes,' another 'Pop-Down Menu' or something pops up with more options like with questions whether it is 'Positive' or 'Negative.' If i choose 'No,' nothing happens.
That's all for now. I have to submit the database soon, so any immediate help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Reason: Figured out how to calculate age...
First of all, thanks for replying.
Second, when defining Relationships between fields, won't i have to create another database? If so, would that databse just contain the information of the subgroups that i want to create? Could you explain more or provide Step-by-Step instructions as i am only a Novice and that would be most helpful.
Regarding my second question, i have been trying to use Script...here are my fuctions but it's not working:
If [Muscle Biopsy: = "Yes"]
Perform Field ["Postivie or Negative:"]
"Muscle Biopsy:" is a field and so is "Positive or Negative:" I also used "Muscle Biopsy:" just to define the field more accurately.
As i press "Ok," i get error message, "The field cannot be found."
What am i doing wrong?
