    I have a large table (600+ fields) can I create a form with multiple pages or tabs to make it easier to navigate? Is there an 3rd party add-on that does this?

    I have never heard of a 3rd party add on.  There is an easy technique to jump to a spot on a form if you like.

     You put this as a formula text field with html enabled button to click


    The anchor tag for where to jump to will be a formula-text field with HTML enabled with the formula

    "<a name=DealerClaim></a>"

    The tag is case sensitive and I would avoid any spaces or special characters. Play with the placement of the anchor tag target  and when you get it how you like it, remove the field name form the form so it will be invisible.

    Hi Danimal, 
    I'm creating a personalized form, in which I have over 80 records, that I would like to divide into several tabs (inside that form). I am not able to access these links, since we are on company QB account.
    Thus I have to ask you for assistance, if possible.

    Thank you very much.

    Kind regards,

    May we have access to the demo app?

    I permitted you as an admin but others will have to work from the Pastie Code or contact me individually. I have 100s of public demos and 1000s of QuickBase applications and I simply cannot administer them by giving admin access to potentially 1000s of individual people. Maybe I should put some of these in the Exchange but then I would be participating in the corporate world of cubicles and have to abide by arbitrary rules. That would just destroy my creativity and will. Let me think about what to do after I delete several hundred "Untitled Application"s that have accumulated.

    Also note that I only implemented the tabs on the new record page - not on the view or add pages.

    Thx Dan. I was just looking for View access. At the time when I first tried the link it required a login.

    Dan, I've implemented the form tabs but something that I've noticed is that sometimes when I refresh the page, the last few sections don't appear as tabs but rather as normal sections at the bottom of each tab. It's not a huge issue just something that I noticed while using it.

    However, I'd like to add a red asterisk next to the tab name when a field in that tab is required. Is there a function that could determine if any fields in that section are required and use an If Else statement to add the asterisk?
