    Unanswered: Global field in the form

    Hi Guys,

    Hope that a global field in BD form, such that only one value will appear in the records in one edit/entry, will be added as a feature

    Hi Ernie
    Yes the ability to place a global directly on a form would be useful but in mean time numerical values can be mirrored by a calculated field and text by setting a dedicated text field with a script triggered by "on select record" with the globals value. The extra space taken by this field should not be a problem. The only concern is if this value changes frequently, will this constant overwriting cause harm to
    database?
    Regards
    David

    Hi David,

    It's a brilliant alternative to the global field in the form feature.

    Thanks
