Chapter 9. Defining Fields > Setting Field Entry Options

Setting Field Entry Options

FileMaker’s Entry Options dialog box offers several powerful tools for speeding data entry and ensuring it meets certain standards. If more than one person will be entering data into the database, these options can reduce keyboard mistakes and problem-generating format variations. The options can be set while you’re defining fields—or added later.

FileMaker lets you customize your field entries for four general areas: Auto-Enter, Validation, Repeating fields, and Storage options. For more information, see page 114 (Auto-Enter), page 116 (Validation), page 124 (Repeating fields), and page 118 (Storage options).
