New User Questions

Postby RedT » Sat May 04, 2019 9:35 pm

Howdy. Am a new user of HanDBase on the iPhone. Have used FileMaker Pro on my desktop PC for many years, but am totally new to this database. Have downloaded the iPhone User Guide and have created five tables. I think I understand the integer and floating fields, but would very much like the number display in the "Float" fields to appear like ###,###.# Is there a way to do that? My databases have a field named 'Mileage' and I prefer to calculate tenths of a mile.
Also, I would prefer to have the fields that display currency values display the $ sign. Is that possible?

Hi there,

Thanks for writing and welcome. HanDBase doesn't really have a mask field to handle formatting for commas and such - you can specify the number of decimal places but that's about it. This was a feature always on my possible wish list but never requested by enough users to get the priority.

Sorry!
