  1. I tried with check, no check. I dont see any differences in the tables. But there must be somewhere.
  2. Thanks Jay. Thats really wierd, but it works in some of the fields, but in others it wont recognize the blank space - showing an error that Disaply has to have a value:
  3. Thanks for the reply Jay! Its odd. Mine behave strangely. Mine does not show "Default" like yours. If I enter default in there with a vlaue of nothing it shows the word default in the top choice of dropdown. SOMEHOW I got Hositals dropdown list to work with a blank first entry by entering just a space for Display and Value. See below. Tried the same thing for the RACE and it wouldnt work. Kept reporting "Display has to have a value". Doesnt work for other fields:
  4. After a lot of learning the nuances I finally got this to work. Thank you! All new comment go to a new table and are logged in a history, just like the examples. Is there a way to get those new comments fields from the new table into my main parent table, so when I export excel reports its not a seperate report/spreadsheet?
  5. Your the best. Wish i could just put you in my pocket for answers. Check out this one... http://forums.caspio.com/index.php?/topic/5948-dropdown-form-item-set-to-blank-with-dropdown-arrow-indicator/
  6. Figured it out. The source code editor was converting quote marks to &quot; and the <a href> brackets to &lt; and &rt;
  7. This helps a lot. Im struggling a little with the HTML block they want to call the Details page they use in there example tutorial. Instead of giving me a link Im getting the HTML just dispalyed:
  8. Thanks for your patience. Im new to this app. Im following the Create a One to Many Relational DataPage tutorial. One step is creating a Log History report form. Using a new data page > Report tabular it shows up with two fields I didnt ask for or need: Distance Search by Zip and Coordinates. See image. I cant identify where I asked it to include these or go to make it go away ;^)
  9. Thanks for the reply. Correct, Im looking for it to show this symbol on a first blank entry: like these: ▼ Not sure what I did but I got it back. It wasnt there before, even though they were drop boxes. But I cant see what allows the blank default entry. Even though the fields are set the same (drop down boxes, referring to lookup tables for their values), some show the tables first value pre-populated, others show the blank. I want the blank indicated here by LSN Time ;^) Whats controlling that?
  10. Maybe Im breaking drop down form field convention, but I would like the drop down field to NOT be pre-populated with one of the lookup table options. But I dont want --ANY -- either and would prefer drop down boxes have that right sided downward arrow icon indicating its a drop down field. I cant get wither to occur. Thank you.
  11. Thank you. Not sure how I missed that. Was on my phone and didnt see that ;^)
  12. Hope that title makes sense. We have a very basic form. One person submits the form and the results of the form go to a target group of people involved. After receiving the initial form responses, members of the group need to be able to respond with thoughts of their own on the matter at hand. But we need to log and track the additional comments that are made. So we have an Additional Comments field the users can access by going to Caspio, looking at that last entry and choosing EDIT record, then type some new info in the Additional Comments field. Not bad. But if each user with additional comments has input, all they can do is Add it to the end of the previous persons entry in the text field. With a lot of discussion this text field could get long with no real way to tell who added what to this growing Additional Comments field. In a perfect world, when a user Edited the form, they would see a blank Additional Comments form in the Edit field. They would add there comments and exit. New comments get recorded as separate entity and, when finished, the next person with a comment to provide would get a blank Additional Comments field. Their entry appended to last comment entry. Does that make any sense?
  13. I have a question but would like to search for the answer before asking the group, in case its already been asked. No SEARCH forum option?
  14. Playing around with Casio free trial for Web Forms. However, after watching first video and following along I noticed discrepancies between the early How To Videos and current interface for Creating a Web Form ( http://howto.caspio.com/videos/getting-started/web-form/ ) . Specifically right off the bat: 1. Create web form part 2 of 3 (http://howto.caspio.com/videos/getting-started/web-form/create-a-web-form-2-of-3-create-a-datapage.html ) it states at 3:00 minutes in for the Date Submitted field settings form element to change it to a Time Stamp, but in current interface Time Stamp isnt an option as Im following along. 2. Create web form part 2 of 3 ( http://howto.caspio.com/videos/getting-started/web-form/create-a-web-form-3-of-3-deploy-a-datapage.html ) it states at about 2:32 minutes into video to Edit fields and Insert Header. But the Insert option/icon referenced is not in current Bridge GUI version. Is there a video showing whgere the new Timestamp feature for a form is or how to insert header/footers? Thanks!
