Hi

I'm trying to use your very useful-looking function but can't get it to work. Please could you help?

I'm trying to get all the field names from a table called Staff.

My syntax is:

FmTableFields ( "Staff" ; "" ; "" ; "" ; "" ; "" )

I have also tried storing the filed name in a field but that doesn't work for me either.

Many thanks.

Regards

Nick

Hi Nick,

The function is case sensitive, perhaps that might be the issue. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rkizyum1jl0rp99/FmTableFields.fmp12.zip?dl=0
