FMS HELP - No Next Field on form

Post by kwfeese » Fri Nov 18, 2022 12:25 pm

I'm a novice FMS person so excuse my ignorance for this help request as I imagine it's a simple fix.

I copied a field and renamed it so I could get user input but when I try to enter data in the new field, it tells me that there is 'No next field on form".

How can I correct this?

it's been a really long time since I last did FMS, but a vague memory suggests the previous field in the form has a setting for NEXT. So, possibly adding your new field requires some work on the previous field in the visit order of the form?

That got it thank Tim.

Had to reset the order as the filed I added was the first for input but forms driver thought it was the last on the screen.

Glad to hear it. I miss working on FMS, though it prepared me for work on a forms package in a 4GL DBMS forms system.
