Text Entry Source

I have added new fields to my DB and added another form. When I add a text box it does not see the new fields I have added in the Data Source box. What do I need to do? I did not see anything in the manual.

What type of fields are the new fields? Form text boxes will only show fields that are compatible with text boxes.

aa6vhDave is right. Different control types work with different field types.

For example, date, time, relationship, link, popup and db popup work well with the button control set to show the value of the field and with a relevant configurable action assigned.

Text controls show text fields, note fields, integer fields and float fields.

Hope this points you in the right direction.
