Visual Foxpro 6 Forms Question
Posted on 2010-09-06
Hi, I am not a developer but have some experience in COBOL (yes, I am aging myself) and I have been asked to add a new form to an existing FVP 6 application. The scenario is:
I have a dbf table (label.dbf) and I need to:
1) have the user enter a delivery #
2) display a few fields for that delivery # in read only mode
3) allow them to enter a Fedex tracking # in 1 of the existing fields in the table. That 1 Fedex # will need to be entered only once and will apply to all the records that apply to that delivery #.
I know this can't be done with the forms wizard and will require some programming. Can anyone lay out a step by step way that I can do this. The more detailed the better as I am totally in the dark with the language and approach.
Thank you in advance!
