I’m setting up a Form which has pretty much the same information as its Data Sheet, but with fields arranged differently in a custom layout. Everything looks good, and I’m ready to enter information, but when I hit “Add” in the menu bar while in Data Mode, a new record appears but replaces the original one. The result is that the Data Sheet contains the original record and the new record, but the Form only shows one record at a time.
Using Fields and Variables in the Construct menu I’ve entered a whole line of Text Editor objects in the Form to enter information. (This is after trying Text List and Matrix objects which were not taking me where I wanted to go.)
The idea is to have the Form display multiple records in alternating rows. I’d do this in the Data Sheet, but other than changing column sizes and rearranging fields, there’s not much in the way of layout changes available, unless I’m missing something.
Can anyone offer any enlightenment? I hope the solution doesn’t involve formulas or procedures; I’m still getting up to speed with the other aspects of Panorama and haven’t yet gained proficiency with buttons 5 and 6 in the Property Inspector.
