How do you create repeating fields in Filemaker so that I can organize my karaoke songs by disc instead of by artist?
posted by smersh to computers & internet (4 answers total)
I'm bought a few karaoke games for the PS3 and I want to create a database for people to be able to flip through to find the song they want.
My knowledge of Filemaker is a bit limited, but I know this is possible: Basically, I want to create a database that lists each song and artist by disc so that it's easy to find what a person wants to sing next.
The Music Library template that Filemaker 10 comes with is close to what I want, and I've modified most of the fields to suit my needs.
Here's my problem:
On the right-hand side of the Music Library template, it has the option to type out the track names. If you press return, it'll automatically create another field to write another song name. I want to use that AND create a field for Artist name as well.
I just can't figure out how to auto-create the Artist field over and over in the same fashion as the Track field.
I hope this is making sense to you (it should if you check out the template and create a couple of tracks). Basically, I want to create a field for Artist, then Track name and then have those two fields repeated. Right now, the template is Artist-centric. This way, it'd be disc-centric (essential since there's twenty artists on one disc).
Thanks for the help
