2.6.1 Creating a Logical Formfile

You can create a logical formfile with toolkit as follows:

gifs/20000000.gif Start toolkit on your database:

c:\> toolkit dbname

gifs/20000000.gif Select 2 - Data Entry Forms Menu from the Toolkit Development Menu.

gifs/20000000.gif Select D1 - Create a Data Entry Form from the Data Entry Forms Menu.

gifs/20000000.gif Enter the new logical formfile name.

gifs/20000000.gif Enter the description of the formfile. See Chapter 5, Creating Formfiles for more information.

To create a logical formfile with commands, enter:

c:\> formedit -cv lfname

Lfname is the logical name for the new formfile. Formedit (C-1) assumes that the database has toolkit style subdirectories; formedit puts the formfile in the scr subdirectory. Formedit runs the formdef(C-1) program to interactively create the formfile definition.
