Subject Re: [IBO] FieldsVisible Question
Sorry that I used the word Table, I use a Query but coming from
Access the word Table is branded in my mind.
I am doing the things you propose, but in this case the (Table) is a
customer table and a lot of fields are not used all the time but are
needed to check on other conditions.
So I only need maybe 5 fields to display to the customer but I need a
lot more fields to do processing on.
It would be handy to set all the fields to not visible and then set
only the ones who must be visible to visible.
