    How do I parse individual fields from my form?

    Asked by Pathagoras on July 18, 2016 at 05:08 AM

    I want to add my data to my database. I don't want Mr. John Q. Doe, but rather I want

    FirstName: John

    Middle Initial Q. and

    LastName: Doe

    with each item in a separate field in my database. Is it possible.?

    Unfortunately, you cannot use the Full Name tool under the Quick Fields if you're planning to separate them in your database. You need to use 3 text box fields for this. After that, you can Shrink the fields so that they will be aligned in 1 row.


    Hope that helps. Let us know if you need any help. Thank you.
