Populating a field based on another field's value


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


Have patience, I am teaching myself filemaker.


Ok, at this point I have a Customers table and a Contacts table. They are related via CustomerID. There can be many contacts for one customer.


I have a field in the Contacts table called "Same Address". If the value of this field is yes, I want "address, city, province, postal code etc..." to be copied from the Customers table into this Contacts record.


Any help is appreciated.




p.s. have tried to make Contacts::Address a calculated field using: If(Contacts::Same Address="yes";Contacts::Address=Customers::Address ;"")

- but it doesn't seem to work - if it says yes, there address field fills with a 0...??

Figured out folks:

Changed it to:

If(Contacts::Same Address="yes";Customers::Address ;"")


But Chevy does this also allow you to enter data into the fields to as when I have tried using calculated fields they lock me from entering data into them...
