I have 2 fields: field 1 and field 2 within a table.  I want a field 3 to appear only if a user selects that they need an additional field.  How do i add additional field logic?

QuickBase does not do that at this time. Do you feel that you could use Multi-Select Text Fields to accomplish the task? Have the user pick from relevant selections from a list?

William,

You CAN do this in QuickBase.

If you add a checkbox, called something like "Show Additional Options".
Then create a dynamic form rule to "Show" [Field 3] when the checkbox is checked.

If you need more guidance on making form rules, let us know, and I can post some screen shots

Well i am using data visualization software to look at the specific content within the fields so i don't know if having all the selections within the same field would allow me to do that.

(I'm intrigued)  What software?  What do you use it for?

William,

My interpretation was that you wanted 'dynamic' field generation. If you create multiple fields in advance and only want field three and so on to show when a check box is checked, then yes.
