I like the lateral thinking behind this form!
Yet another way that dBASE can do what you want; although we are bending the rules and avoiding
the designer. Bruce uses a calculated character field based on your logical field to get round the problem
that there isn't a character datalink available. However, because the IDE does not cope well with calculated
fields the programming is more complex.
